Nice. I like the minimalistic look. I want to see if I can make some grips out of a burl wood. That would be pretty sweet I thinkThey seem grippy enough and definitely do not feel slippery. I think the key is that the front and back part of the grips have the checkered aluminum (I think) and that is very grippy. I did some one-handed shooting today (not very good I might add) and I didn't have any grip issues.
