    Show me pics!! PPK with custom / wood grips

    I am the proud papa of an Interarms PPK. Still waiting for it to arrive at my FFL for pickup. I'm interested in slapping on some wood grips, but cant find too many pictures. I've found plenty of grips, but no pictures of them ON the gun. Who can post up some pics of PPK's with custom grips? I'm more interested in the PPK, not the PPK/S. The PPK has a wrap around style grip, and the PPK/S has a two piece grip from what I understand. Thanks guys!!

    I'd like to see some too. The PPK (Interarms) is on my short list only because James Bond carried one.
    The original German made ones seem to be impossible to find, and I don't want a new (S&W) one.

    I've always like the PPK, but never really had enough desire to go buy one. I'm with you...the S&W isnt "real" enough, but the originals are tough to get. I dont really care about the "Bond" factor...I just think its a gorgeous gun with some cool history. The only reason I bought this one was the deal basically fell in my lap, and it was too good to pass up.

    How about this? Not a "K" or wood grips, but German WWII era with custom grips. I don't care for them, but being a safe queen I haven't got around to changing them.

    The grips are kinda washed out in the photo, but I get the jist. Those grips are extremely expensive if you add them aftermarket!!! I priced a few sets of the war-era grips closing in on $500!

    Anyone have any experience with the Hogue wood grips? http://www.hoguestore.com/index.php?...ex&cPath=30_73 I love the look of some of these, but either they are a fantastic deal, or just not built too well.

    Ooooo yea those are nice!! I couldnt find any other Nil grips...do you know if they make grips that are not textured? I like the smooth look. Also, am I right in assuming that the Nil grips are of better quality (fit/finish) than the Hogue? You dont always get what you pay for, but I do know this...you never get what you DONT pay for :) I'm guessing the double-price has to give me SOME benefit? Thanks again!
