  1. Looking for some decent slim grips that do not cost and arm and a leg.

    Thanks,

  3. Right around $50, maybe a little more. Looking at all material, wood, G10, etc.

    You can forget VZ grips ($$$$)... ok, they are quality grips but they are not made out of Gold and I am not paying a arm and a leg just for "handling" charges, they can keep em.

    Navidrex thin grips are awesome ($)

    So are Chip McCormick thin grips ($$)

    VZ grips,

    $65 for a set of grips.
    $8 for postage

    Where the heJJ does this arm & a leg handling crap come into play?
    State the facts, get them correct and drop the BS! Care to explain?

    Well, I rechecked and it appears that USPS priority is indeed less that $8.00 but I made my original comment based on their price listed for UPS ground which was $17 with a nice little note about handling charges. I always UPS (out of habbit) which in this case was not the smart choice.

    Since the $8.00 option exists, I will of course retract my opinion on (arm and a leg) and reserve that comment specifically for their handling charge associated with UPS ground.
