I was looking through the revolver picture thread and spotted a couple grips that I liked. Anyone know where I might be able to find rounded grips like these (below) for a GP100? Midway didn't seem to have anything like that...

Perhaps you should pose your question on the Ruger forum:

Nothing like that for Ruger's. They do not have a grip frame.

The grip frame has nothing to do with it. It was designed in that way to give you MORE options for aftermarket grips.

I don't know of any curved grips for the GP100, but that doesn't mean they don't exist or can't be made. The wood Hogue grips could almost be sanded down into that shape, but you'd run out of wood in some areas.

Try Hogue Monogrips. You can get wood or synthetics or laminated wood. They are my favorite grips for the GP-100 and Super Redhawk.

Too bad I haven't seen those options. Most of what I see are Hogue (blah), the Badgers (blah), and a bunch of rubber grips, almost all with finger grooves (blah!).

Well, maybe this one might fit the OP's criteria: some Pachmayr Presentation Round-butt grips:

Almost, but not quite: Excalibur grips

I'd like to see wood versions of the factory grip (the rubber one, before they went straight Hogue). I'd even like to see it relieved for the grip-inserts--that'd be cool.

WF Lett used to make a really nice fingergroove grip for GP-100s. Does anyone know what happened to them?

According to the other forums, Lett went the way of the dodo birds, and is no more. A real shame too.
