New grips on the Raptor

Put VZ grips on the Raptor today.
Planning her first trip to the range tomorrow.
Iíll keep the wood grips in the case for now.

Your new grips look great but I wouldn’t get rid of the original grips. You can’t buy the original grips from Kimber. You may find a set online but they can be expensive.

JC makes a good point. If I was looking to buy a used Raptor I would really want it to have the original grips.

Nice looking grips. Always good to have a change of clothes.
