Hogue’s line of fancy hardwood handgun grips includes a dazzling array of exotic woods and grains, each one a unique work of art and fine craftsmanship, hand-finished by Hogue to a glowing, smooth polished finish or checkered, according to your preference. Your fancy hardwood grip is a one-of-a-kind, heirloom quality piece of Hogue family history, designed to create a natural connection between you and your favourite firearm.
Of all the fancy hardwoods, Cocobolo features the most dramatic contrasts between light and dark swirls of beautiful heartwood figuring. It loves a polished finish and our craftsmen burnish Cocobolo to a glassy, high gloss shine, especially if you choose a smooth grip finish. Feast your eyes on gorgeous yellow, orange and reddish-browns mixed with dark, irregular traces of deep purple and black, weaving through the wood in straight or interlocked grain. Cocobolo is a popular choice for gun grip and knife makers for several reasons: it’s very hard and fine textured, it stands up well in hard use and it looks great!
Hogue's exotic hardwood grips will reward you with improved scores and comfortable shooting for year to come!

1. Before starting to work, make sure your fire arm is unloaded.
2. Remove the regular factory stocks. No alterations of the frame is required. Place the stirrup over the bottom strap of the handle and rotate it until the hole in each side engages the stock pin.
3. When in place, the stirrup is a clamp that provides a screw thread hanging below the handle for securing the Monogrip to the frame. Remove the screw from the stirrup.
4. Mate the firearm handle and Monogrip by first placing the stirrup and stock pin into the internal guide grooves.
5. Monogrip should be guided up behind the trigger guard then pivoted to cover the frame straps. The grip must mate with the semi-circular "loops" at the top of the firearm handle. Monogrip must be fully seated on the frame before inserting mounting screw. Using a thin object, like a paper-clip, make sure threads in stirrup are properly aligned withe the screw hole.
6. Insert the mounting screw through the hole in the bottom of the grip so it enters the stirrup threads. Tighten the screw until it is snug, using an appropriate screwdriver. Be careful not to cross thread the screw or nut. The screw should thread easily without resistance. Over-tightening does nothing to increase grip tightness on the frame and can damage the screw or stirrup.
7. Your Monogrip is designed to fit an averaged size firearm frame, however, frame dimensions do vary slightly from firearm to firearm. If necessary, your Monogrip can be adjusted by placing small shim(s) of tape on the lower corner of the front strip. Add or subtract tape until grip is flushed with backstrap.
