Bob's workmanship is excellent, the fit and finish on the Counselor superb - which is a bit tough because the mag well precludes using standard compact office sized grips.

    If you have a Counselor, and you want different grips - I'd suggest starting your search with Cherokee Hills. This is my second set, the first are a set of half-checkered riding on a Colt 38 Super - when I decided I wanted something other than the factory grips on the Counselor, I got in touch with Cherokee Hills. The entire transaction was completed by email. I wanted a touch of grippy surface, but not much as the 9mm Counselor doesn't require a lot of finger traction. I found the OEM grips great this winter (and fantastic running them in gloves), but I felt they would be a bit scratchy against bare skin in the coming Kentucky summer humidity.

    I'm happy.
