Adding wood grips adds a taste of home.
The standard grips that Ruger supplies with the GP100 actually feel pretty good in the hand. However, from the beginning of the project, I knew I had to upgrade for both feel and swag points.
I chose Hogue's Goncalo Alves Ruger Blackhawk grips. These puppies have the finger groove shape I wanted to and enough variation in the wood to keep them interesting. Not so much though that they look gimmicky... looking at you Hogue Lamo Camo Grips.
Not a bad improvement, eh?
