    expensive grips, worth it?

    Hello all!
    I am looking to slim and sharpen up my Sig p239 with a pair of Hogue Extreme Aluminum grips. At 130 bucks I would like to have any feedback from any shooters who have experience with Hogue aluminum grips. Ive included the picture of the grips im interested in on the p239. Looks sharp but, is it worth it?

    I got a set of checkered Hogue Coco Bolo wood grips in for my Sig P245, which is only slightly larger than the P239.




    They cost me $105 ordered direct from Hogue, and I am happy with them. Very attractive, and the checkering facilitates a good grip, without being too aggressive.

    I have no experience with their aluminum grips.

    Expensive grips better be worth it! Just plopped down some green for a wood set for the PPK. I could be wrong, but even if you feel they arent worth it, someone will always be willing to take them off your hands. Hope ya like em!

    I think that it depends of how much you like them.

    I spent $27 for a pair of beautiful book matched fancy walnut grips for my S&W 1911 Sc Commander, but $130 for two pieces of aluminum???? NO WAY!!

    I bought the Sig Sauer Aluminum grips for my 228 for $180 IIRC. I hesitated for a while, I was looking for something just thinner than the stock grips and it was either the aluminum Sig's or the Hogue's. After mulling it over for a few days I just bit the bullet and ordered them and questioned my sanity. When they came and I installed them I couldn't have been happier. The feel in the hand was better (not that it was ever bad but different) and it gave me the little extra reach to the trigger I was looking for. I bought mine for a purpose (I got plain black so there is no added bling) and I'd gladly buy them again, or for any other Sig I will own in the future, but I still think the grips are overpriced. The only down side I've found is the aluminum grip on a bare side (IWB) can be cold at first! LOL

    Not to be critical but you must have very small hands. Most people me included put the hogue finger grips on because they find the P239 grips a little too small.

    I have small hands and I've put the aluminum grips and short trigger on my P229 so it fits my hand.

    But the bottom line is do what works for you.

    In all my research the aluminum grips were considered the thinnest.

    Have you just tried a pair of factory plastic grips?

    What looks better, grips or a C-note in your hand? Only you can decide my son...
