2224538

My hands hurt looking at these things, and that may be a good thing for those looking for the ultimate in grippy-ness from their handgun. Hogue has released their Magrip kits for the 1911 handgun with full-size frames, including the highly textured G10 grips seen in the title photograph.

The new kits feature three components, two extended grip panels and a matching mainspring housing which together create a full extended magazine well on the handgun. Options range from checkered colored grips, to nifty polished “flame” grips, snakeskin, striped, plain black, and the extremely aggressive G10 grips. All kits are offered in standard flat mainsprings and arched configuration.

Retail pricing for the kits ranges from $99.95 to $119.95. Owners of Sig P226 handguards are also included in the new Magrip line, albeit with limited color choices.

  • Only the aluminum versions are new. The G10 versions have been on the market for a couple of years now, and have been OEM items on certain manufacturers’ pistols.

    That lovely anodizing is going to get scratched up and worn bare with any serious use. I’ve seen USPSA competitors gouge steel magwells.

      Yep, I’ve gone through 2 magwells on my 2011 shooting IPSC over 6 years, used them to the point where the gouges in them from rough mag insertions are actually catching up mags and causing problems.

  • NDS

    Yes I had the Sig Scorpion 1911 that had the G10 version from the factory a few years ago. Very nicely textured, wasn’t hard on my hands at all. Overall I liked them.

    I have the G10s on a 9mm Iver Johnson that I use for IDPA. The matching mainspring housing really adds to the hand retention and the tapered magwell is a nice touch. It’s a pricey grip but worth it, in my opinion.

  • spitfirerobinson

    These seriously came out over a year ago.

    • Dan

      It stated in the article that a lot of customers were not aware of the grips so they were trying to get the word out.

    • Yes, we’ve offered them for some time now. It’s just that a lot of our customers (and potential customers) aren’t aware of our Magrip option. We’re just trying to get the word out.
