Our exclusive molding process is exceptionally superior when it comes to semi-automatics. Because the rubber we use actually bonds chemically to the insert, a smooth hard surface can remain on the inside of the grip. This duplicates a stock grip configuration on the inside, and allows us to maintain exacting tolerances. Other brands with metal inserts must wrap rubber all the way around the insert which can hang up on the vital working mechanisms found so close to the grip on many automatics. And the superior design of Hogue grips allows us to provide rubber over the entire outside of the grip. Hogue rubber grips utilize a strong insert, but because rubber doesn't have to wrap all the way around, we can make a smaller and more comfortable grip for high capacity double stack magazine guns.
