How to install it? I cannot find a youtube video nor any real good directions on how to do this. The design is silly as it screws in the bottom with a shim type nut deal. I would appreciate any input on this...

First, remove the old set of grips.
Second, The spring steel piece included with your new Hogue grip needs to be spread apart to snap over the existing locating pin on the bottom the grip frame. It should hang loose from that pin with the screw hole facing away from the grip frame.
3rd, slide your new grip from the bottom of the guns grip frame all the way up to the frame of the gun.
The pin that is in your grip frame of your gun should track along the inside of the Hogue grip.
Once the grip is all the way up on your frame, you should now be able to install the screw from the bottom.
This should snug everything up.



Good luck, Jeff (GUNKWAZY)

Python Hogue grips are unique and have a seperate pin included. Slide the stirrup over the frame bottom and put the provided pin on the stirrup holes. so the stirrup will hang freely by the pin. Do NOT use the factory stock pin as in S&W Hogue grips. There might be a rubber shim included, and that goes between the frame and stirrup so the stirrup will not go upward when grips are slid on. Very simple when you've done it before.

Well, not so simple.
Getting that hard to hold pin into the holes in the stirrup can make you crazy.

However, once you get the stirrup on and the grip attached, the Hogue is the most solid grip there is and one of the very best Colt grips around as far as feel.

Simply hold it w/needle nose vice grips, otherwise its tough.

Some people don't like Hogues, but I do. On all of my shootin' S&Ws and Colt revolvers, I have mounted Hogues and Pachmayrs and put the original grips away for safekeeping so they do not get damaged. Much more comfortable to shoot.

I will give a bit of advice on the Hogue grips from my findings...Keep your gun clean! I have owned many Colt revolvers where some dirt got between the grip and the metal and when the gun is fired it creates a sanding action and the outline of the grip will embed itself into the metal. I'm sure this is the case with any grip but for some reason I never see any damage except for the Hogue. I guess the very top lip of the grip does not sit tight to the metal allowing some small particles to get behind.

Mine didnt come with the stirrup pin for my grip when I bought the gun off the guy he didnt include it with all the grips he gave me. Thank you all for your help in this matter. Just a look at http://www.getgrip.com/PDF files/Instruction PDF files/Rubber MonoGrip 2.pdf this made much more sense to me because I am just missing a vital component. I do not like the Pachmyer grips because the rubber is still too stiff . I think I will enjoy the Hogue grips more when I get them on. I sent Hogue an email about getting a replacement pin.
