Default GUY HOGUE GRIPS

Fuzzy Farrant and John Hurst Grips get a lot of love from grip collectors but Guy Hogue grips do not get the same attention.
There was a set sold on Ebay some time ago that were identified as Farrant's but I think they were Hogue's based a the interior of the grips.
Guy Hogue used white chalk to identify the sides of the grips and
used a brass colored screw. Hogue also put a support fixture inside the grips.
I believe the following are Hogue's.
#1 I believe these are a very early set with out the inside fixture but has the brass screw and white chalk.


#2 a later set with inside fixture.


#3 is for a Colt E/I frame with a letter


#4 J frame has white chalk and inside fixture



Also note on 2,3 and 4 the high wood on the right side of the grip that continues today.

Very nice Roy, I concur with your assessment. The early Hogue grips I have owned are of equal or superior fit, design, quality to the other makers. The set below is a rare N-Frame set made of an exotic wood. The grip angle and checkering is slightly different than your K-frame Rosewood set above.

In 1986 he was at the Masters International Shooting Championship In Barry, IL with his trailer and grips to sell. These were the newer style with the bottom screw and one piece construction. I purchased a pair thich didn't quite fit my 686, so I took them back the next day and he had all the sanding/finishing equipment in his trailer and slightly sanded down the grips to fit perfectly. He explained to me there was no finish on the grips, and just to put a good wood wax on them every year or so.

I still have them on that same 686.

Bought these on eBay, years ago. They came with the wrong mounting hardware. Contacted Hogue and they sent me the correct hardware and told me that these are original Guy Hogue's.



Adios,

Pizza Bob

I spoke with Guy's son Pat at Shot Show. He told me his dad was more than a grip maker he did furniture, also. I showed him the letter and he said his dad wanted satisfied customers and he did all his own correspondence.

Here is my Jim Clark Sr. built Smython with Guy Hogue asymmetrical stocks. It is an absolute work of art.
