Very nice! New grips are like mag wheels for the car. A single and simple change that can really make a gun yours!

The mag well adds just that little bit more length for better purchase.

I went with the Tripp Research Gen II 8/round Cobra Mags with the alloy base pad. It works like a mag extention for the micro guns and provides me the purchase I'm comfortable with.



Tripp Research, Inc.


Is that a Galco Royal Guard?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Beautiful. Those wooden grips really look good on her.

That sure is Purty. But if I am to be Honest, I like the Before better. JMHO.
