Got these on the black Friday sale combined with American Express' $25 credit for shopping small business... my grips cost me about $35!!! They are hyena brown gunner grips, and i cut my usual thumb notch into them to aid with mag release. I think the colors where i made the cut really look fantastic, and give a little custom touch.

Looks good, are those vz or 10-8 grip screws, they look like they have a nice black color to them?

Thanks,
Mike

FYI: VZ makes the grips for 10-8.
Thanks bud.

I did not recall seeing that thumb cut out like that. I like it but would want to feel it with my grip before I committed to something that big. But I like it. I took my Carbon Fiber VZ's and some sand paper an worked them into thinner grips, no edges and made the cut out for the mag release larger adn smoothed it off all around. LOVE THEM. But I like the way I think those would feel.

Nice looking gun!

i use a file, a dremel, and some sandpaper till i get the contour i like.... ive done a couple sets for people on here, and they feel awesome... cigar head, ive got an extra set at the house that are also cut, that id be willing to send ya and let ya try them out before you commited to making the cut.

the grip screws are 10-8 and i got black, bc soon i will be cerakoting the gun a matte black. the gun looks much better with the stainless star screws, but they wont fit down into these grips, so i went ahead and put the 10-8s into now.

lemme know if any of yall are interested in having yours cut...
