Is there anyone who has an extra set of grips for sale? I found someone to make carbon fiber grips for my Boberg, but he needs a set of grips for a pattern, and I don't want to leave my gun out of commission. I will post photos here once they are done if I'm successful.
Vern, I'm interested in this project. I sent you a friend request. Let's discuss.
Maybe you can get a set from Bond.
I do not know well they would hold up but they sure look good.
Here is a XR9 with the stock grips treated with Hydro Graphic Dipping.
There is quite a bit of info on google about testing the durability, I think it would be worth a try.
The carbon fiber grips, including a matching magazine pad, are $79.99, with free worldwide shipping.
