    Checkered wood grips are sharp,what to do?

    I've god a pair of checkered wood grips that have some really sharp checkering on them,so sharp they are painful to shoot much with. What can I do about this problem? Is there a way these grips can be sanded to smooth them up without ruining them? Thanks for any help on this guys.

    you could take a block of wood and wrap some fine grit sandpaper around it then lightly sand over the tips until you take the points off

    I think I'd rather buy new grips than sand those beauties.

    Or shoot more frequently until your hands get less sensitive.

    Yeah, those are nice. Suck it up and get used to it or email me and I'll trade you a pair of smooth ones for them.

    Definitely order some new ones instead of harming those in any way. Cobra grips are not exactly plentiful these days...

    I wouldn't use sandpaper. Buff lightly with 0000 steel wool. Also, try a little furniture past wax.

    Thanks guys I think I'll leave them as is. Maybe I'll add a tyler T grip adapter to give me a better purchase on the grip.

    Shoot with gloves on until they wear a little? Or take the same gloves (i'd use some plain cotton work gloves) and rub back and forth a bit. Less destructive than sandpaper and should work with a little elbow grease.

    My raptors were all a little rough, but after a few hundred rounds they don't "Bite" anymore but instead just offer a great grip.
