Thoughts on the wc aggressive starburst grips?
Are they more of a gamer grip, carry or hybrid?
I have them, and like them. They are not that aggressive, say compared to VZ Operator II's. More like VZ Operators.
I'd never tried them before but they came on a gun I just traded for. I'm used to VZ Operators II or Recons, both of which I find grippier than the Aggressive Starburst. Based on that comparison I would call them carry grips.
ummmmmmm....... lets see...... hmmmm..... You don't have a "classy" choice.
Which is where I'd put them.
I put them on my carry ULC and like them very much
Enough bite for a range session?
Just me but, I find the aggressive starburst to be very grippy. I love them for range work but think they would be a little rough for carrying.
I like them at the range and for carry. I do wear an undershirt so don't have a problem with rubbing while carrying. I am a fan.
I like them.
These are the most secure in-hand grips I have used. I wish they came without the emblem as I'd like them on all my guns.
They do, Sir. SGM makes them, and I believe for Wilson too. They can be had from sgmgrips.com, they are "9102 XT STARBURST.
I have 2 Wilson pistols with the starburst grips and really enjoy them. They aren't as pretty as some of my wood grips but they are very functional.
So, it turns out that VZ makes the grips for Wilson. I just ordered some Wilson grips like in the attached photo and they came in VZ packaging.
Do you have the VZ part #
The smoother starburst grips on my 2014 CQB are Hogue. But correct, the aggressive starburst are VZ's
These are probably the Wilson part numbers versus VZ, but I have been wrong many timers before:
Full size (govt.) is 738-FS-FB-BLK
Compact is 739-CP-FB-BLK
These have a thumb notch in the left grip for mag release.
