Grips For Stainless?

Well most of my fellow brothers and sisters on here say the ho hum black rubber grips on the recently acquired Stainless Ultra Carry 9mm are UGLY, and I agree 110%. Future plans the SUC will get a set of Crimson Trace but for now and just for fun lets see what the membership likes.

Chuck, I was digging around in the old safe, getting all my grips together to check out and see what I like best. Turns out I have several extra grip sets that are full size but only two spare sets that are Ultra size. I know what I liked best and will reveal later.

Sometimes I have a hard time picking between Black or Silver grip screws, I think I like the Black screws best.

The Blue/Black thin with Ball Mill is off the Sapphire Ultra. One pictured with silver screws and one with black screws.

Rosewood grips are off the CDP Ultra. Pictured with Black screws.

I like the first one with the blue/black grips and silver screws. It could be because it reminds me of the blue/black grips and silver screws on my EDC Super Carry Pro, LOL.

If I were choosing I would say the middle set. I like the gloss and the hint of blue and the black screws.

Arland, I have a Pearce finger grove insert that will work under any grips you want to use on the gun. Click the link to see what I'm talking about, if you want them they're yours, PM me you snail mail address and I'll send them to you.

That is a very kind offer Chuck. Much more attractive than the all rubber look.
I really don't need them, my grip is one of the few things on my body that still works pretty well...now a younger set of eyes, that's what I'm talking about! Thanks anyway.

I'd probably go with the middle picture. I think they all look pretty nice.

I do not need younger eyes I think I just need a new mirror cause what I am seeing can't be right!
