Looking for the Best Grips for Steel Challenge.



Log in to see fewer ads
I've started shooting Steel Challenge with my Volquartsen V-2000, which comes with a set of Bullseye Grips (best for one handed shooting).


I'm looking for a grip designed for use with both hands. Something specifically designed for shooting Steel Challenges would be nice.

So..... what are you Steel Challenge shooters using on your MKIII's?

Hogue grips

I know a few that actually use the grip you have ( I did at one time ) I now use the Hogue grip on most of my two handed guns. Sorry don't have a photo readily available Maybe some one else cant post one.

Hogue G10 grips. If shooting rimfire open consider getting a thumbrest although most require modifying the frame. Of course I use a VQ alloy frame so things like that are easier to deal with.

After searching endlessly, and finding nothing specifically designed for shooting in Steel Challenge. I picked up the Ruger Competition grips.

Ended up working out perfectly.

Sorry for the picture quality, it's pouring down rain and very dark outside.
If you look closely you'll see that the grip does have a small thumb-rest.

I'm kind of partial to these from Hogue. These are on a 22/45 but they make very similar ones for Mk III. You can get them in black too I suppose.:

Yep that's the same ones I use on about 4 different guns from 22 to a 45 except in black. Helps keep the hand position on the grip the same from gun to gun

grips

I have several Volquartsen Scorpions on the target style (Mark III) frame and I have the Volq Volthane grips on all of them. I shoot a lot in hot weather (Florida) and these grips work very well. Many think that these grips only work for people with very large hands - but I find this not to be true.
