Aftermarket grips



Log in to see fewer ads
I would like a nice set of wood grips (oversized preferred), for my MK4. I think that the flat sided ones from Ruger are a bit costly for what you get. Altamont is out because I hate finger groves. They never fit correctly (fat hands). Searched the net and can't find any available. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I like Stonercnc.com for my grips. A little thicker than the standard Ruger but I like the way they fit in my hands.

I like mine!

Made for me by our own SGW Gunsmith. These are a good bit thicker than standard Ruger grips and I imagine they could be made to any dimensions you want:




Made from the same blank of Bubinga (an African Rosewood) used to make my SuperStock African Rose:




I just sent him the wood and told him to do whatever he wanted to do. Reasonable cost too. I kind of liked the ribbon "V"

They don't seem to be offering grips for the Mark IV as yet.

Mark IV Grips

I purchased a set of walnut wood grips wit a left side thumb rest from Eagle Grips, Inc. They are a beautiful set of grips, but are not made quite right in that they don't quite cover the hollow in the handle. When I contacted Eagle, they said they were aware of the problem. They were not given the right information from Ruger and they just assumed the dimensions were the same as the Mark III, but these dimensions were slightly different for the Mark IV.
They told me they were changing the prints and when the new design was complete they would send me a replacement set.
Well, that has been quite a while ago. I called them yesterday and they said they were still working on it and their best guess for when the new designed grips would be ready would be 2 months. Sorry, but I don't want to wait that long. In addition, the left grip developed a crack in the top left corner at the bolt hold lever.
The gentleman I spoke with was very nice and said I could return the grips for a refund, which I am doing.
I just ordered a set of the laminate grips from Ruger. I used my 20% new firearm credit discount.
Hopefully I will get the new grips soon.

Not a fan

I am not a big fan of eagle grips. Dealt with them b before. Took a U.S.F.A. 22 to them to have some custom wood grips made. They said no problem, 2 to 4 weeks to be done. After several phone calls and four months of nothing, I went and took the gun back. Won't have anything else to do with them.
