This is my current edc and the brown grips are the ones that have been on it since I bought it and changed out the factory grips. I thought I would jazz it up a little with some color but I’m having second thoughts now.

    Which is why we all have a pile of extra grips! Best laid plans go awry all the time!

    They both look pretty good but I prefer the old ones a little more.

    It's bold, for sure. I say carry it a few days before you make any decisions. I like green grips but usually you see then on a all black gun

    Since green is one of my least favorite colors (cash excluded) I vote brown..... but then again, someone here told me to quit worrying about what others think...... so, suit yourself.

    No offense, but the green ones are just too gaudy for me.

    Put the brown on the left and the green on the right. Problem solved

    Yep, I think you nailed it. It’s just not working with the two tone.

    I had one of those SC's a long time ago, I carried it everyday for 4 yrs, they are nice carry guns. I prefer the brown grips ;)

    No offense taken. This is the first time I’ve ever tried a bold color and I’m having second thoughts.

    This is my third one. I keep trading them off and then missing them. I’ve got much nicer guns but for edc I keep coming back to these.

    I think @Old Sea Dragon nailed it. They would look good on a solid color gun but the two tone is not working with them.

    I have those same Raasco grips on a gun. Just not round butt.

    I really hate that Raasco went out of business.
