    Got some DW wood grips from a buddy and tried them out on my VBOB....

    the wood is definitely more aesthetically appealing indeed.. :thumb: but the question is, how do they feel in comparison?

    Doesn't look bad on a stainless model. Can't stand them on the black model.

    Yep. I wasn't fond of them on my Guardian, but they do look ok on the VBOB.
