The new grips are designed to provide shooters with an ideal ergonomic grip, using a thin profile that is designed to last for a lifetime of use. The G10 material used to make the grips is made by combining layers of fiberglass with epoxy resin that are then squeezed together using high heat and pressure. The G10 material that results is known for its lightweight, strong, chemical-resistant properties.
Hogue's G10 pistol grips are impervious to common firearm cleaners, ensuring that users don't have to worry about cleaner seeping into the stocks of the grip during routine maintenance. The grips are also incredibly resistant to thermal changes, so the grips will not suffer damage from excess temperatures.
The new Ruger Mark IV G10 grips are available with three separate finishes. The Piranha Grip is aggressively textured for the most purchase possible, ensuring that shooters won't lose their firing grip. Other options include a traditional diamond checkering for a less-aggressive feel, as well as a smooth finish for a sleeker option. The grips feature a tapered thumb recess around the magazine release to ensure reliable magazine ejection.
The suggested retail price on the new Hogue Ruger Mark IV G10 pistol grips is $39.95 for smooth, untextured grips. The suggested retail price for options with diamond- and Piranha-checkering is $59.95.
