Grips?

Can anyone identify these grips? They are on my new to me Tactical Pro II.

They look like a set of VZ grips from a couple of years ago...

I agree they look like VZ grips. Have you removed them? They may be marked with company name or number, model?

VZ, thanks. They look good but are very sharp and rough on the hands. Might be able to tone them down some with a little light sanding.
Just pulled one, confirmed VZ.

A VERY light sanding with some 320 grit will take the sharp edge off. VERY light.

I have a new Tactical never shot IF you want factory grips we could talk out a trade. I like VZs. Would change mine out anyway and I like aggressive grips.

But would understand you keeping them and knocking the points off too.

My VZs I bought direct were very sharp. Be very careful if you use sandpaper. They use multiple layers to give you the fancy effects. What I did is used my wife's medium emery board and literally just dragged it across under its own weight over all the sharp edges. Believe it or not, it worked. Just my 2 cents.
