I'm a big fan of leather grips. Looking forward to your next pair.

I wasnt to sure how they would turn out but these grips seem to have a realy nice feel there are a few mistakes on this pair that I will correct on the next.

Never tried SKIN grips but they sound interesting. I wonder how they hold up and wether get slick with use.

BillyHart 11-27-2012 03:17 AM

I have not had them on long enough to know cane can probally tell you more about how well leather grips hold up.

Leather starts to smell after a while when it gets wet, especially if your hands sweat and that happens a lot while shooting. Nobody wants a gun that stinks. It will get dirty for sure as well, so how can it be cleaned, or is it even worth it? Also, leather grips if kept on the gun permanently may cause the gun metal to pit, or rust. These are just some questions I would have, especially if I was thinking about putting leather grips on a gun I cared about. They do look good though and are interesting.

Tell ya what. In light of what gunsmoke just said, I'll risk my gun finish and test them long term for you for free. I'll even pay the shipping.

I'll give a detailed report on any rust or pitting, a weekly smell report, and adverse conditions gripping and durability.

Trip let me get another pair done this week.like I said there are a few mistakes on this pair and I will take you up on that . It will be good for me to have an unbiased opinion.
