    A Luxury Item? Fancy Grip Screws

    $20.00 for a set of 4
    Engraved Hex Head Grip Screws. They look nice. Might be worth the extra money if you spent big dollars on a nice set of custom grips. The perfect "last touch"


    Here is where to get them along with some other (gulp) high quality parts.

    Sheesh...$195.00 for this mated hammer & sear....yikes!
    Beautiful Hammer & Sear (like a "work of art" sculpted metal)
    but, slightly too rich for my blood.

    Wow - those screws are nice. The one thing that ruined the look of my mother of pearl grips on my NAA Mini was the flathead screw.

    Natural Pearl

    Meanwhile I have never seen prices higher for natural pearl slabs & scales.
    For large, nice pistol scales 1911 size the price just for the slabs is unreal.
    I guess the ocean is finally running out of huge, giant pearl type shells.

    Very nice screws... surprised I say that as I don't place a huge reliance on aesthetics.

    As for mated hammer/sear - shucks - spendy ++.

    Has Sig gotten any better with their grip screws or do you still have to get aftermarket ones to keep from having the rusty screw look? When I had a Sig I did spend the cash for decent grip screws.

    Monty - I reckon my grip screws on the 226ST are doin' fairly well - not too much sign of corrosion despite me having to watch slide lock lever and decock lever - give them a rub with CLP or RIG. Same needed too for base area of mag.

    I'd be happier if these components were all stainless tho of course.

    Nice. My PO1 wears brass screws gifted to me by a member of czforum.com, and they set off the Hakan grips quite nicely. Little touches like that are very nice...
