    So my Trophy Match just got a new Ed Browm magwell and I switched out the FLGR for a GI and with my wood Cocobolo grips and a mag I'm at 40.8 oz. I want to add a set of VZ grips but I only have 1.2 extra oz to work with. Are VZ grips going to weigh more or less than my original SA cocobolo grips?

    Thanks in advance
  2. I weighed my cocobolo ahrend's and they weigh 1.387 oz. A pair of vz aliens weigh 2.0785 oz. both grips have the ambi cut. The aliens may be slim, but I can't remember. Different VZ models might weigh slightly more or less.

    Hope I helped.

  3. I believe the new weight limit for CDP is 43 oz. you have plenty of room there. you might even make it with the FLGR.
