    Love that grip Viper. If I did't spend too much money on my ct grip I would do that one . Kind of got that Wiley Clapp look on the Gp 100. Sharp.

    The wooden compact style grips on eBay marked "Thailand" are thinner than Hogue's overly round and bulky design in about the same shape (finger grooves, round butt, closed area behind trigger guard.

    Once I got the ammo toned down for the smaller gun (custom loads in 357 cases), I went back to the original grips with custom insert. I do have to watch my grip and not get up too firmly against the trigger guard. It's still a knuckle bruiser.

    I admit that I mostly shoot my tame cast reloads in mine too.

    The Hogue Monogrip is very good. Just deal with Amazon rather than Hogue directly, and life will be good.

    How big are your hands? I hate the way Hogue feels I have large hands, have you
    ever seen John Morse grips for SP101? I attatched a pic. Yoyu can get them on ebay. if you have medium hands it will probly fit well too. take care.

    Glove size is usually small. Affecting reach to the trigger is an important factor. It all falls into place for me with many Hogues, especially rubber.

    To me, the critical improvement with an SP101 grip is filling the area behind the trigger guard. There is a lot more space there than with a stock GP100 grip.

    I suppose a shooter with big hands wouldn't mind a broom handle feel to a grip.

    I just received some Altamont with the fish scale wood. They are beautiful and the checkering on the rubber may help. I'll find out tomorrow. They are almost identical in size to the factory grips. I also have a Pachmayr grip that is a joy to shoot with, but a bit wide under the shirt.
