Monogrip one-piece revolver stocks were designed and patented by Guy Hogue, a retired L.A.P.D. shooting instructor and armorer. After 10 years of custom making conventional two piece grips, Guy, a perfectionist, was never satisfied with the way two-piece revolver grips mount and fit, even when custom made.
The answer...a one-piece grip that mounts from the bottom. Trademarked Monogrip, the one-piece design eliminates the short- comings of traditional two-piece grips. This single piece grip slides on revolver frames from the bottom, requiring no modifications of the firearm.
A patented steel "stirrup" device clips over the existing stockpin or bottom strap of the frame. The stirrup is the key component in the system that adapts the grip to the gun handle. Attached in seconds, the stirrup solidly secures the grip to the frame. Because the mounting force is from the bottom, they do not shoot loose. Obsolete two-piece revolver grips that attach from the side must rely on the frame to stockpin tolerance to maintain a secure fit. This tolerance varies, which on a two-piece grip can lead to loose shifting panels.
Since it is a fact that gun frame dimensions do vary slightly, Monogrips, by virtue of their unique mounting system compensate for varying frame tolerances. This assures a secure, comfortable grip. Monogrips not only dress up a gun, they also are designed to provide optimal pointing characteristics. Shooters are on target faster and more consistently with a grip designed to point naturally. The famed Hogue orthopedic handshape, comfortable and secure, is a smooth ergonomic design that positions the hand consistently every time. Monogrip's design allows a high handhold on the backstrap which effectively lowers the bore line. This low bore line reduces muzzle rise in recoil and materially aids rapid-fire recovery time, especially when using a two-hand hold. Palm swells are ambidextrous, allowing equal comfort and control for either right or left handed shooters. Generous recoil shoulder helps spread impact from heavy magnum loads. And of course all revolver grips are fully relieved for speedloaders.
Hogue pioneered the design concept and refined the functional shape for Monogrip. There is only one original. Although others have tried to copy Hogue's shape in a two piece revolver grip, nothing compares with the features of a true Monogrip.
