Kingwood – once known as Prince- or Princesswood – is an incredibly dense, very hard, classic furniture hardwood. You’ll find centuries-old examples of Kingwood in fine furniture and small turned items dating back to the 1700s. Kingwood practically glows in purple and soft brown hues with many fine darker stripes and occasional irregular swirls. Hogue’s craftsmen have turned Kingwood into grips with a spectacular smooth or checkered finish. This is not just a “fancy” hardwood – it’s a rare breed of wood fit for a king, or queen!
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.
