    I got in a set of the thin Alumagrips today from Thunder Ranch for my TRS. I think they really set off the NP3+. What do you guys think?

    Thanks, Brian.....It certainly is a different look, that is for sure. I kind of like it for that reason. I am really starting to give a little harder look at the Alumagrips. I had never dealt with them until you ordered your NN with them. The more I mess with them, the more they are growing on me.

    Thanks Bulldog. Yes, I did take the picture. Still working on my photography skills, though. I still have some shadows I am contending with.

    It looks nice but I think a black set of grips might even look better. :cool:

    I agree....Unfortunately, Thunder Ranch does not offer the thin TRS grips in black. I kind of wanted to stick with the Thunder Ranch theme on this specific pistol.

    What a shame. :crying:

    That contrast would look awesome.

    :wow:

    I actually like that color combo quite a bit. I'm looking for a similar solid gray color for my HC SRP.

    I think it looks great. Is that a stainless finish or hardchrome?

    I was thinking that Sig Sauer's aluminum grips would look good on my P226, but the best price I could find was $158 bucks, which I think is a bit pricey for grips on a $800.00 gun.

    NP3 Plus, Joe. I have never had much luck getting the true color in pictures of the NP3. The grips are actually a very subtle olive color.

    The good ol' P226. My issue sidearm for 10.5 years during my Navy days. I wish I had a dollar for every round I have shot through one of those bad boys.....It is the only Sig I still own. (NSW P226 Navy) Great pistol!!!

    You're fortunate. I had to carry the POS Beretta M9 after they took my M1911A1 away from me.
