    On sale at a local shop. Was there for another gun but they were sold out. Saw this and had to grab it. Put the white grips on yesterday because I wanted it to look like Pacino's gun in "Heat"!

    I understand. I would've never picked them out myself either. Really just trying to get as close to the ones in the movie as I could. And, they were not expensive. I like a lot of the grips that are out there, and will probably end up with a couple of different styles. Here it is with the "stock" ones:

    Congrats. I think the grips set the gun off very nicely.
