    I’ve been looking for few years to find a set of vintage Mad Dog GunGrips. In their day (mid 90’s) they were quite unique and hard to find, made with some space age composite material and had a ‘so called’ indestructible nature. They might be made out of some special G10 (or even just ordinary G10 :) ) but back in the day they were pretty unique. Kevin McClung ‘aka Mad Dog’ also used this material for his knife handles.

    I used to own a pair of these GunGrips years ago, as well as a number of Kevin’s more famous MD Labs ATAK knives. I foolishly sold all of them off in one of my gear purges. This pair of GunGrips that I recently found have a slightly modified profile/contouring and I’ve read that Steve Morrison (when he was working with Kevin McClung at MD Labs) did this on a few of their ‘hard use’ pistols. This particular pair came off a Chuck Rogers build. They are mounted on my GI ‘no name’ now; gives it a vintage look with the vertical slide serrations. Just thought I’d post these if they are Addicts interested, or had never seen a pair before.

    Those are gorgeous grips, and they look amazing on that GI.

    I love the FCS on that build. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for sharing the pics. I have always disliked front serrations, until I saw your GI. Very nicely done, sir!
