Pachmyar front strap only?
 
Hey guys, so I'm not really at a dilema, yet, but I'm wondering if you guys know of a front strap add on like the one the comes on the pachmayr grips. I really like the way my hogue grips fit and feel, but i'd love that extra bit of control the front strap would offer. IF I have to, I'll probably switch to the pachmayr grips, or get the front strap checkered and cerakote the whole thing. Any suggestions would be very appreciated. I'll post pictures of my RIA tomorrow, since I never did do that:P
Thanks folks.

These are some wilson combat front straps. They get mixed reviews

Thanks, yeah those wilson things are about as crappy as they come, one of the rental guns had them on there a few months back. Thanks again, Honestly:)

Here's another I forgot. They're a lot more than the Wilson's but these are top quality and Egw make some top of the line stuff. I'd highly recommend them.

I never did show appreciation, thanks franz! They weren't what I was looking for but you went above and beyond, thanks!

Do your own stippling. It's not that hard to do.

And that just takes a center punch? Hmmm... I've already got the parkerizing stripped off... I could do it... How's it feel sir?

The beauty of stippling is you start slow and light and increase roughness until you get it the way you like it.

Here's Canebrake with a Ti boron finish:

My Defender is not customized, its me!

Canebrake is a work in progress. I will have the flat top serrated. Pretty standard stuff, right?

How about a weak side thumb rest? Or an asymmetrical trigger guard hollowed out on the strong side for a trigger finger rest?

It's gorgeous sir, I'm debating stippling now:P
I figure I'll sleep on it tonight. Thanks Again Cane!
I need to go kill me a Mojave Green so I can have someone make me some cool grips:P
