Looking for Python grips




I know this is a 1911 forum but I figured you folks are like me an have all sorts of Colts so, here goes.

I would like to put a nice set of wood grips on my Pythons. Any suggestions as to suppliers?

Thanks.

Always liked Jordan Troopers by Herrett.

Think the website is www.getgrip.com

Oops, that's the Hogue website.

Herrett is www.herrett-stocks.com.

Hogue does some pretty nice stuff in wood as well bit I've got big hands and like the Troopers.

OEM colt grips are Expensive...had to look for a set a few yrs back for both a Python and a Diamondback.

I have two Jordan Trooper build specs on file at Herretts. One for .22's and 38's with the smaller S&W K frame. Then have a slightly larger set of dimensions for the larger N frame magnums. Works out well.


Troopers on a Lt Wt Hunter N frame.

The Herretts are not cheap, but spring for the A or AA fancy option. REALLY pretties up the grips. And if Your Law enforcement , even LE retired they give a discount.

I remember seeing that batch of wheelguns when I hung out on the S & W forum. Loves me some Herretts. Stunning collection.

Yes, I have a lot of 1911's in my adopted herd.
A woman can never have too many nice guns. (or Herrett's stocks)
I seem to have concurrently running 1911, S&W N frame and FN rifle addictions. One day I may have to buy food again.

Herrets look really nice. I've never owned, or held a firearm with them on it. May have to try some someday.

I have 4 Pythons wearing Hogue WOOD monogrips with fingergrooves that sure feel good in my hand, and disperse recoil very well. I'd suggest taking a look at them also.

Herretts Stocks - for 'fit' you'll send in a tracing of your hand
so the guy that makes them are for your size hands.

Jordan Troopers - classic designed by Bill Jordan one of the best
for absorbing recoil of the Herretts stocks.

Herrett Jordan - a little different in shape and nice checkering pattern.

Standard is Walnut - but you can ask about the availability of other wood


I have Guy Hogue on my S&Ws. but have shot a herret shod 19 and
definietly want Troopers for a S&W Model 60 3" Bbl. .357 Mag I hav.
