Hogue rubber grips are moulded from durable synthetic rubber that is neither spongy nor tacky yet provides a soft recoil absorbing feel without affecting accuracy. This modern rubber requires a completely different moulding process than ordinary neoprene resulting in a much superior grip. The flexibility of our materials and moulding process has allowed us to produce rubber grips with features that out perform all other makes.

- 1. This Hogue Grip has been manufactured to fit both Smith & Wesson Bodyguard and Smith & Wesson Centennial models. Read instruction carefully as there are unique instructions for each model.
- 2. Before starting to work, make sure the firearm is unloaded. Remove existing grips.
- 3. BODYGUARD MODELS ONLY: To ensure a proper fit on Bodyguard models, remove the 4 plastic molars that have been pre-installed inside the grip. A small Allen wrench or similar tool will assist in prying them loose
- 4. BODYGUARD MODELS ONLY: Install the new stock pin which was supplied with the grip. The new pin has been devised to fit properly in both your firearm and your new grip. There is no need to torque aggressively while tightening during installation. However, it is important for the stock pin to be centered on the frame.
- 5. With the finger grooves of the grip facing the same direction as the barrel, insert the firearm into the grip with the stock pin fitting into the internal guide grooves. Then, with a radial motion, begin to slide the grip onto the frame. There is an intentionally tight fit where the top edge of the grip meets the frame. The use of 2 business cards, similar card stock, or even the plastic from this package can be used as a guide to assist the grip with sliding over the frame. Once the grip clears the frame edge, continue sliding in on with a radial motion.
- 6. BODYGUARD MODELS ONLY: To ensure a proper fit on Bodyguard models, remove the curved palm spacer from the butt cap and fully insert into the gap between the grip and firearm.
- 7. METAL CENTENNIAL MODEL ONLY: Remove curved palm spacer from the butt cap and discard.
- 8. Insert a .38 special shell casing (or prying tool) into round cavity on butt cap to spread apart, then fit cap over stock pin and butt of firearm until is snaps into place. Much force may be required in spreading the extremely durable butt cap. Remove shell casing when butt cap is seated. Finish your installation by pushing butt cap firmly onto firearm to achieve a positive lock around stock pin.
- 9. It is not necessary to remove your Hogue rubber grip for routine cleaning. If you need to remove it for further maintenance, simply insert .38 special shell casing (or prying tool) back into round cavity or butt cap to release it.
