Talking UCII-new VZ Operator II grips

Just received my new VZ Operator-II grips.
They are the SLIM version with the bevel and thumb notch.
Color: Desert Sand
Cost: $69
I also bought VZ's universal bushings and the torx screws.

My hands are small, only 5-5 in size, and i can say these are big improvement over the stock wood versions that came with my gun.
Before my fingers barely touch and during shooting, after a few shots, i had to readjust my grip.
Now... my fingers slightly over lap, the aggressive texture is enough for me not needing to readjust as soon.

If your hands are small - - I HIGHLY recommend you get slim grips.
Makes a world of difference.

See the photos below.

I agree that the VZ grips are unbelievably grippy. I love the feel...almost like gripping a porcupine. LOL. No slip for sure. I have a pair that looks similar maybe different color. I had them on my CDP ultra before I installed a magwell. I love swapping out grips from time to time just for something different but for serious no slide grip the VZs are the best that I have.

Your gun went from looking pretty to looking bad ass, nice attitude adjustment.

Cool Nice!!

Really nice grips. I checked into some VZ grips for my Pro Carry II. I looked at those and Hogue. G-10 grips. When I saw the Hogue Red Lave grips, I got pretty excited. Then I was the Blue Lava grips and VZ lost me completely!! I had to have the Hogue Blue Lava grips. They are just way too nice. They just seem to shout ME!!! Had to have a set!!

Looks great, VZ makes really attractive, durable and functional grips.
A little tip, if you find any area of the grip a little too aggressive and want to take a little of the bite out of it. A little fine grit sandpaper will knock the sharp edge off and not change the look one bit. Just remember a little goes a long way.
