    New Carbon Creations, Carbon Fiber Grips

    Ordered these a few weeks ago and got them in Friday. Ive never had carbon fiber grips and thought the color combination on these would be good for this pistol. I was surprised to find that these are solid black, but the "grain" in the carbon fiber makes them look silver depending on the light reflected off of them. Very pleased with these. Great texture and grip as well.

    Carbon fiber are also used to create light cars that can produce higher mpg ratings. That's why Ford Motors has agreed to a relationship with Dow Chemical Co. The duo will produce lighter, stronger carbon fiber components that will significantly assist the automaker in reaching national gas mileage goals. Source Article: Ford, Dow partner to produce carbon fiber vehicle components.

    Good info Mayanne. I believe Carbon Creations does auto body work as well. Have to check on that.

    I have made many race car parts of carbon fiber and Kevlar. They are an un-stretchable fabric that when encapsulated as a structural shape, in the same plastics and resins as fiberglass is, become very strong, light structural pieces. The use of carbon fiber in firearm grips, knife handles, household goods, etc. is pretty silly, from an engineering viewpoint. With the exception of texture and grip, pistol grips function the same whether they are made of plastic, wood, or rubber, of any color. My friends call fancy and pointless Harley accessories "Butt jewelry". That said, as "Belt jewlery" I like your new grips, they are cool and add a lot to the presence of the pistol.

    Thank you sir. Belt jewelry is a good thing when customizing.

    Got some brushed silver slex-head grip screws from Wicked Grips and they blend in well with the two tone theme of the pistol. Much better than the blued IMO.

    Grip is perfect while shooting. The violent recoil and sweaty hands are not an issue with these. I was skeptical of the tactical/ranger checkering but had to try them. Glad I did.
