New grips!

So, I can't find -- or afford! -- actual abalone grips; and the fake ones look horrid to my eye!

But, I've been wandering around the web (always dangerous!) and decided my pretty new Sapphire needed a new coat!

The lighting is bad (trying to avoid reflections off the shiny) -- but the grips do not 'overwhelm' the blue-shiny. Not too aggressive a feel either.

Put the original blue ones on my original stainless. (Didn't notice till I got the Sapphire Micro that the STL came with BLACK grips, not the rosewood ones! Huh.) Lotsa pretty now!

I have always liked that design...I think some call it Starburst.

Abalone grips? One would think a New Orleans Pimp could afford any grips he/she wanted.

They look good, I have a Diamond Ultra and I’m not a big fan of the ball milled grips(anymore). Not so much the look but the feel. This gun has ball milled on the frontstrap and msh. You don’t get a good grip on the gun. I picked up a set of VZ grips that look great until they are on the gun. It’s not easy finding the perfect grips for these special edition guns.

Agreed, the ball mill grips I have are fine until your hand gets sweaty or wet, then they are a problem.

Soon as I meet one, I'll shoot him and steal his grips?

Nah, he probably doesn't have the GOOD TASTE to have abolone grips!
