I have a Ruger SP101 (KSP-321XL) that I plan to make my primary concealed carry weapon. I will be ordering a Milt Sparks IWB holster soon. My question is, for those that carry this gun do you find the factory rubber grips have a tendency to be a little grabby with your cover garment? Especially if you were light weight cover garments like an untucked T-shirt? I like the size and shape of the factory grips, but other rubber grips I've used had a tendency to do this. If so, what after market grips would you consider? I was looking at Eagle Grips and Badger Custom Grips. What is your opinion of these? What else would you recommend?

I never thought the factory grips were particularly grabby. My Hogue Monogrip feels good in the hand but seems 20x grabbier than factory.


Can't speak to any other grips. If I was seriously worried about grabby, I'd probably just get me some beautiful wood on there. :cool:

Take a look at the Pachmayr Compac grips. They are not grippy and are very easy to conceal. Although they look a little odd, they are the most natural-pointing grips I have ever used.

Another recommendation for the Pach's. I have been carrying my SP101 for a few years with them, and they are great. Not nearly as grabby as the Hogue's, and not as bulky either. For lots of shooting the Hogue's are good, but for concealing, the Pach's are the cat's meow.

I put Pachmayr Compacs on my SP101, too, mostly because I think they look better than the stock grips.

Here's mine with the Pachmayers.
