    Anyone know where I can find these: snake grip.JPG

    Google is not helping.

    Good luck. I dunno that I’ve seen them for sale alone. I’ll keep my eyes open.

    I also just did a search online. I found nothing as far as raptor grips go.

    I sold a set about 4 years ago, I have since been half-a$$ed looking for a replacement for them, to no avail. Kimber may be your best source.

    since I was a Kimber fanboy year ago, I'll chime in. It's the one thing Kimber won't sell anyone. Raptor grips only come on Raptors. I've seen them sell on eBay for over $200, when they appear.

    I heard (probably on KimberTalk) that someone cracked one panel and Kimber wouldn't sell him a replacement unless he returned the original set

    Damn you Kimber! LOL I don't mix brands and grips, but always liked those. Now I have a Kimber...

    AZ is correct, you have to return the broken grips to Kimber to get new Raptor grips. Some of the best looking original grips I've seen.

    To me the Raptor is about the best looking gun Kimber makes. I’ve had 2 and sold 2.

    Agreed. HA, I've bought 3 and still own 3. What you going to put them on "if" you find any?

    I'm in a pickle, if you knew me you would know I have a spare Raptor grip set in my stash but I'm not looking to sell them. Some goober put them up for sale on Kimber Talk even with most of us telling him not to. I bought them within 5 min. of his post going live. Funny at the time I only owned the Ultra Raptor so I didn't own a Raptor they would fit. I had them on my SIS Custom for awhile but finally put them up.
    Sadly I have not seen any Raptor grips up for sale in a long time. I would try different wording when searching, like "Raptor Zebrawood" etc. SIS Custom (2).jpg

    I'm sorry I know this isn't helping you with your problem.

    I sold a good friend of mine my unused Grand Raptor... he's only sort of a gun guy. I'll see if he wants to part with them for some $$$s
