MK III grips



Log in to see fewer ads
I want to put a new grip on my MKIII and would like to get suggestions from folks that know this pistola well. I have used Hogue on other caliber handguns and found them to work just fine, but have to assume there are several other choices.

What do y'all use, where did you get it, and about how much did it cost? Photos would be great.

How 'bout that for lazy research for a first time poster on an outstanding forum?

Welcome to RFC!

I have a Hogue thumbrest on my MKIII. Real comfortable and gives a consistent grip from shot to shot. Only partial downfall is the thumbrest makes it a little more difficult to hit the mag release. Nothing an extended mag release wouldn't fix.

Here's mine.



ETA: Got mine for about $18 from Midway

Dude! Lazy is OK as long as you are are aware of it! Now go get someone to read this thread to you!

My favorite is the Volquartsen Vothane Grip seen here on Rimfire Sports & Custom's Webpage. They are the bomb diggity

http://www.rimfiresports.com/merchan...egory_Code=VC2

However, if you want to go for the UBER Bomb Diggity then you can get them in laminate wood! As seen here:

http://www.rimfiresports.com/merchan...egory_Code=VC2

The old stand by Hogue's are nice and reasonably priced too.

http://www.hoguestore.com/

Here are some nice "Old School" grips:

And some people (not me) like Pachmayr:

http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct...tNumber=633454

OH...don't forget Crimson Trace for that disco look:

http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct...tNumber=654662

STOP THE PRESSES! I forgot one..if you really want to get snarky getcha some Hogue Aluminum grips with a Punisher logo or the Mirror Skull...

http://www.gungrips.net/ruger_mk_ii___mk_iii_grips.htm

AND...I saved the best for last.............For a Classy Chassis go here and get you some Altamont grips:

http://altamontco.com/products/pistol/ruger/mark2.php

So now go find someone else to do your dirty work you bum!

I like the Volquartsen best for target shooting. Some say they are too big for their hand.

I currently have the hogue (w/ thumbrest)....they are pkg for the MK II, but with slight trimming they fit the MK III just fine....having said that, I'm waiting for volquartsens to produce me a set of their wood grips in a dk blue....

I have no criticisms of the others mentioned, but I went with the Pachmayr Signature grips for my everyday use. They look very similar to the Hogue rubber grips, and a guy might want to carve out just a little more room for the mag release, but these Pachmayrs are first rate IMO...

I guess I'll be the lone voice in the woods here, but I like wood......whichever style you like is up to you, but I think if you choose wood, you can't go wrong.
