I'm wondering what everyone's take on various grip selections are?

I don't want finger grooves or rubber. I don't really have extra large hands but I am used to shooting more fat-bodied guns and find the stock grips a bit thin.

So what do you guys use?

Well, I use the wooden factory stocks on most of my guns. However,, when the new plastic stocks came out on guns with the infernal lock system,, I made my own wooded ones. They fit my hands quite well.

All mine have wooden ones of the original profile. Plenty of makers of grips having slightly different profiles.

I have large hands and the factory stocks fit me well. I have several aftermarket grips but all are original "cowboy style".
CLC Custom Grips has a Gunfighter Grip that you may like.

If mine aren't factory, they're certainly factory profile either our own 41magnum or Klamath River Woodwork.

Not in IL anymore ... :)
All my single actions have the factory or factory equivalent custom grips. There is such a thing as "too fat" single action grips. To me even Rugers XR3-RED grip panels are a bit too fat. I much prefer the original XR3 style.

In the commercial offerings, Hogue makes a SA stock I like. They are a tad thicker at the top than the factory stocks and interesting woods can be had. I like the way they feel on a BH.
