Looking at buying a DC Solo w/crimson trace grips

I'm looking at purchasing a used Solo DC with Crimson Trace grips and was looking to see what everyone on here thinks about the probability on selling the grips? Not a fan of them and the DC come's with the original grips as well. Just a question.....not looking to sell them on here. Thanks!

I would keep them; it may become a collectors item someday.

The Solo rosewood grips are no longer listed on the CT website, just black. Production of the rosewood may have ended. Curiously, Kimber has the rosewood on sale for $220. Final clearance of old inventory?

The Kid may be right about a collectors item.

Agree but still have no use and having to pay more for them I want to make sure I can flip them without issue...

Kimber is selling new black laser grips for $180. Solo - Handguns

So if you're looking to sell used, I'd guess you could quickly get $125 - $150 in excellent condition. Unless you're hurting for money I think the Kid's advice is the way to go... keep em. They'll help sell the gun quicker and get the same return or better than selling separate IMO.

Due to the known issues the Solo can experience and Kimber's discontinued production of the Solo for the most part people that's going to buy a Solo have already done so. I don't think you will get very many offers from members wanting to buy Solo CT grips. IMO
But Good Luck.
