Thanks. If the light doesn't hit them right they look very dark.

I ordered these for my Kimber Pro CDP II. I recently added a stainless MSH and mag well so I ordered them with mag well cuts and thumb relief on both sets. Can't wait to get them.

I was thinking about the cut out too, but I decided not. Those look awesome. You are going to love them. It was funny when I opened the package you can still smell some of the chemicals. Another thing the grips are a little aggressive compared to my factory Rugers. They still feel great though.. I was thinking about getting the lime green ones, but haven't decided yet.

So I ordered two sets of grips, a set of stainless torx screws, some o-rings, and paid $7.50 for priority shipping and it was about $115. Not too bad IMO.

Here's my new set of bone grips for my P238. They came in today at my office so I laser engraved them immediately. I like how they turned out.
