    Here are some photo's of some possible grip choices for my GP160. Which do you think would look the best on this gun?:

    1)Stock Hogue rubber:

    I strongly prefer the Ruger rubber with the inserts. They look far better than the others IMO.

    Solid wood duplicate by a mile.

    While I am nearly ALWAYS a fan of Hogues grips, i hate the ones they make for the GP100. They just look so huge and clunky they throw it off.

    The stock grips are nice. But the last ones there still have pretty wood like the Hogues, but without all the terrible clunkiness.

    Thats a nice looking GP160, I like the half lug look, only made for a short while & very hard to find. I too prefer the rubber Ruger grips with inserts. I changed my inserts on both the GP100 & SP101 to stag.

    I think the solid wood duplicates look best. I never cared for the rubber grips with inserts myself, although the ones in the post before me almost have me changing my mind.

    Rubber with the inserts, or the wood version of the Ruger Rubber jobs.

    Definitly not the Hogues, wood nor rubber. Not attractive at all.

    Personally, I prefer the wood stocks pictured last.

    Wood Lett grips hands down. If you end up going with the factory rubber or the Hogues those wood Lett grips go for a lot of money on gunbroker or e-bay.

    I prefer rubber grips with inserts ... and 41 Magnum over at RugerForum.com makes some fine custom inserts.

    The woods duplicating the shape of the insert-style factory grips win by a mile, at least where appearance is concerned. Letts, right? I have been searching for something like that for quite a while.

    Second place, the factory rubber with those black laminated wood inserts, look really good.

    Hogues, ugh! I dislike their garish appearance, and in actual practice, the palm swells are too low, and the finger grooves badly placed, for my hands. Some Hogue autopistol grips are really good, but their revolver grips are no good for me.

    The factory rubber with wood inserts fit my hand best, I like some of the fancy wood inserts for the old style factory grips.
