Hello. Like many others, I've used Spegel Hi Power grips for years and find them both comfortable and good looking. I also continue to have a fondness for the original checkered ones that came on the classic style Hi Powers as well as today's Standard Model based on the Mk III "chasis". Hakan Pek's stocks have also proven elegant and comfortable but I finally got around to trying a set of Hogue's "fancy hardwood" grips for the Hi Power.

For those who might be interested, both the selection and pricing can be found here:

These are checkered Pau Ferro wood. Fit is fine and they do not move when in place. Neither do they protrude into the magazine well and bind against the magazine.


Here's the other side. Though I use only a single-side thumb safety, these will work with the extended ambidextrous thumb safety which comes standard on the current crop of Hi Power pistols.

To me, the feel is as good as any other Hi Power stocks I've tried, though I admit that is completely subjective and others might or might not agree. Thickness is similar to the Spegel and these grips offered good purchase while firing.

If memory serves, I had to wait a few weeks for these.

If a Hi Power shooter is perusing the Internet for a set of new Hi Power grips, Mr. Hogue's products might be worth a hard look.

Best.

Wood really dresses up the Hi Power, but I keep coming back to the Hogue rubber grips. I have a Browning .40 Hi Power, a FN 9mm Hi Power and the FEG PJK-9HP Hi Power clone and they all sport the Hogue rubber grips. The combination just fits my grip perfectly.

People are probably sick of me saying this, but I was less than thrilled with how that pistol stayed put in my hand during firing with the stock grips. Maybe the checkering is not aggressive enough. But I put some Hogue rubber ones on and I hate the way they look but I love how the pistol feels and it stays put waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better during firing.

I'll be the first to admit that the Spegel and Hogue (and other) wood grips look and feel superb-but like others, I've found that the Spegel grips are just a tad too thin for me, allowing my trigger finger to protrude too far on the trigger (past the first distal joint) for shooting comfort/control. And then there's the issue of the slppery frontstrap...

My solution has been to go with the Hogue grips, with the frontstrap fingergrooves. The grip is comfortable and effective in positioning my hand perfectly-it "bulks up" the slim Hi-Power frame perfectly for me.

Yes, aesthetically the black rubber Hogue grips are utilitarian at best-but they work.

Best, Jon
