I've been looking at the Hogue replacement grips for my PPK at MidwayUSA lately. The original grips felt cheap and actually flexed if I gripped it tight so I didn't think they'd hold up long. Well, I happened to get lucky and catch them in stock last week - they usually have them listed as "special order, 90 days."
I decided on smooth Kingwood and they really dress up the pop gun nicely. They're a bit thicker than the original grips so they fill my hand better but they might also print more in a pocket holster, I'll have to see about that. Anyway, here's before and after pics ... gotta love Midway!
