I got my E2 Grips for my P226 and they feel great. And because there are no screws, it actually gave it a nice clean look. I also got a stainless guide rod and couldn't stand the mis-match with the blued barrel, so I polished it and now it looks awesome. It was super easy. A little vinegar, sand paper (600, 1000, 2000), mothers polish, and a buffing drill bit (I used a dremel), and your done in less than an hour.
