    Who has them and what do you all think about them?

    I am mainly looking at them for my Sig Sauers.

    Pros and Cons would be greatly appreciated. Added thickness to the overall grip of the gun?

    I appreciate all comments!

    I have them on three of my six SIGs. They are almost a necessity on the single stack 232 and 239 to round out the front straps and have a palm swell that I like a lot. Hogue furniture is slab sided.

    I have them on Walther P-5 and on one of the J-Frames. They work very well on Walther, palm swells are just perfect. Not so well on a snubnose: they feel good in hand but transmit recoil and catch on things more than factory (older) plastic grips.

    beautiful and expensive, I don't know if I would feel comfortable having them on a carry piece that could get bumped but...they sure looked and felt great on my brother's P7...

    I always felt they look best on German pistols, such as Sig, HK, Walher, etc.

    The only "con" I can think of is you don't want to carry them for fear of damaging them. :supergrin:

    Pro = beautiful, high quality, fits perfectly. People take it for granted but crappily fitted grips will impede a SIG Sauer's function. I know all too well from my POS Eagle Grips for the P225.

    Con = expensive and hard to find.

    You guys are awesome!!!

    How well do they hold up?

    I'm not worried about using them on my carry guns. What I would like to know is: Do they require any special TLC other than "Put 'em on and carry away"?

    Those pictures are awesome by the way!!!

    Cobra,

    Thank you for giving that picture of the grip profile!!! Much appreciated!!!

    In relative terms, they could be considered expensive compared to $15 factory grips or in the case of a Glock, no option at all. :)

    Regardless, if they improve your grip and fit to the pistol making you a better shooter, then it's worth the additional cost. Much like having premium tires on a car alllows the car to be more responsive.

    As for having them getting bumped; I could see how they might get beat up if you carry as a construction worker on a job site.

    I've had no issues with the grips' longevity nor aesthetics on my carry pistols since I rarely carry when I engage in mud wrestling with the ladies,
    nor training on a combat course.

    Yup. He missed the point.

    Remember about 2 years ago when I posted a photo of a Browning BT-99 that I was going to buy? You had to scroll right to the Atlantic ocean to get to the barrel. :rofl:
