The handgun stock is large, as I expected, but I have large hands. I wanted a bigger and longer grip than the Dragoon style provided on the my Ruger Blackhawk to help tame recoil with heavy loads in the 357 magnum. I am able to get all my fingers on the stock including my pinky.
I understand Hogue recently made changes to their 'grips' to better fit Ruger Blackhawks, so I don't think the instructions included reflected those changes. The directions said to use the large diameter pin to install. Once I used the smaller pin, everything fit together beautifully with no modifications to the revolver. I didn't need to remove the retaining pin for the original stock as a groove was cut in the Hogue to accommodate it.
The instructions included a phone number to Hogue and a statement to call them if you had any problems at all.
The laminate is finished well, with different colors of green and browns which help highlight the stainless steel finish of the revolver. I would have preferred more tans and browns and less green, but it goes well with the finish of the revolver.
Overall, I would recommend and will buy Hogue again.
Pros: Good fit and finish
Cons: Installation instructions...
Would recommend: Yes
