    If they're out, you might try places like gunbroker etc. Sometimes that stuff will pop up on there.
    Good luck!

    Gentlemen,
    I GREATLY appreciate the recommendation ( I truly do!) , but I don't checker grips. Grips are a very subjective thing and sometimes I just have to accept that mine aren't for everybody. No matter how wrong that may be. :rofl: Seriously, getting the grips YOU want in the end is what is important, no matter what they are or who makes them. Grips do you no good if they don't aid you in shooting comfortably and well.
    Did I mention that I appreciate it though? :cool:

    Ryan's grips are absolutely fabulous. While I do not personally own a set (only because I don't have my Brown yet), I have done a TON of reading about grips and recommendations and people's testimonials on various forums and time and again, two names always come up.....Sarge and Esmerelda. I have yet to hear a bad thing about either. Not only is he an active member here (among other boards), but I have emailed back and forth with Ryan about grips (and gun stuff in general) and he has ALWAYS taken the time to not only answer my questions, but much more. Not only is he a true artisan, he is a hell of a good guy.

    I currently have a Kobra Carry build I am paying off, and it will no doubt be wearing a set of grips from him when I get it. Now as to which ones.....that's the damn problem. Too many choices. :supergrin:
