Afternoon Project - Installing Grip Medallions

We headed up to lake this morning for a long weekend and I brought my Ultra Raptor along to work in a project. Id found some G-10 thin grips to put on for carrying and to to preserve the original Raptor grips. They looked kinda bland so I got out a set of Texas Marshall Medallions Id found on eBay to dress the grips up a bit. Well, the project didnt get off to a good start as the motor went out on my drill press while working the first grip half. Dang it !!! So I proceeded freehand and I think they came out looking pretty good.

Hope the pics come out ok, I forgot my laptop this morning.

Looks great, what grips are they . They look good on the raptor, I have one myself. Are they thin grip? Thanks I have thin grip bushings already if needed.

Bought them on eBay from Spresser Grips. They are thin grips. Love how they feel on the Raptor.

I like that Starburst look. I think they look awesome.


Now lets talk about that Brown holster? I'm thinking something in a Black exotic leather.
