    I bought this Ruger Superblackhawk in 44 mag. last year. Let me tell you the roll in the recoil was hard for me to get used to.:confused2:
    So, finally I mounted up a set of Hogue grips yesterday, Wow what a difference. It handles like a completely different gun, the felt recoil is reduced by about half. This will make a fine little deer shooter now.....olj

    I have wooden finger groove grips on my mod. 29 smith and you
    are right it does make a big difference on the roll. Yours are probably
    even better because the rubber offers cushion to.

    At one time I owned a TC contender super 14 in 357 Maximum. I changed the grips from the stock to Pachmeyer ,Made a huge difference,But I still had to wear shooting gloves as the trigger spur would leave the knuckles of my right hand bloodied after 10 rnds or so.:confused2:

    That is why I picked up the hogue instead of the pachmyer; the grips cover the bottom of the trigger-guard and protects that middle finger.

    I ain't sure they were available back in 1980? might be wrong,But If they were I most likely couldn't have afforded them after the contender :smile2:

    I dont know either buddy! I want to get a contender bad. Hogue's are cheaper than the pachmyer's. thats another reason I chose them.:smile2:

    I was getting lazy, I put rubber grips on my Ruger .44 Mag Super Blackhawk. Much more comfortable to shoot. The recoil is hard on my wrist tho.

    I use Hogue, it may just be me put ALL of the Pachmyer grips I've had felt HUGE and were not comfortable. My 38 special Taurus snubnose had Pachmyer grips on when I got it and they were not comfortable to shoot and the gun did not want to stay on target when shooting. I traded a guy for an original wood set and like it alot better. 5 shots into a can at 10-15 yds and never have to adjust my grip.
    My Redhawk had another set that made it a two handed gun, the Hogue set I put on are much smaller and grip MUCH MUCH better, within 50yds and a one handed shot, it is mine.
