    Talking Hakan's grips arrive!

    Went to the mailbox late last week and was surprised to see an envelope had come from Norway. Here they are on my Mil-Spec: Bookmatched Turkish Walnut with "Half and Half" stippling.


    And in my Max-Con V - it doesn't get any better than this:


    Of course, the pics don't do them justice but I've got to say the stippling is the most comfortable surface texture I've ever felt on a set of grips - it gives plenty of surface for a secure grip on the gun without being overly abrasive on the palms ... or the ribs when holstered! Fit and finish are simply outstanding and I couldn't be happier (unless I had another set ).

    Looks like I've got a new source for all my future grips.

    That's a good looking set of grips. Just curious, is the stippling on the top of the flip side, or on the bottom?

    Jack - fine grips

    I have seen his work before but every time I see more I am reminded why folks get them. Lovely work.

    The opposite side is matching:


    Kim Ahrends uses a somewhat similar approach with his "Tactical" checkering. Here's an old pic of my SA Champion w/ Ahrends' Tactical in Gaboon Ebony:


    The basic idea is, your hand slides smoothly over the gripframe when reaching for the gun and as you close your hand to draw, you naturally grip into the textured portion.
