Picked it up today!

Went to my LG today and picked up my Stainless Pro Carry. Brought it home, stripped and cleand. Was happy to learn previous owner liked to use a light grease on the rails and places. Overall well maintained from what I can see. Barrell still looks very good. I should tell you this is a 2010 w/night siights. Next will be the range for a function test. Also have another pair of grips I took off my Eclipse I am going to put on for now. I have to order myself the flat wire recoil spring kit for it. Just checked the night sights are glowing brightly another plus. I saved some money when I bought it now I have to decide what accessories I may want to add.

Had these grips in a box

These grips look a little better than the stock rubber ones.

I like those grip screws. I'm thinking the Pro will my next.

I think the previous owner had different grips and custom screws on it and he changed them when he sold the gun but left the screws.

Just about any grip looks better than the stock black rubber ones. I like the laying around grips you installed, they match real nice.

A big congrats to you Tom. That shooter looks gorgeous and I have to say that those grips look great compared to the slabs of rubber Kimber puts on some of their models.
