These grips are lighter than the stock grips. We measure the weight of the stock aluminum grips at 58 grams. Our grips weigh 53 grams.
We made these grips for people who like the thin aluminum grips, but want something with more bite.
Our grips are made from Phenolic G10. G10 is only 1/2 the weight of aluminum but nearly as strong with a grippier texture. G10 won’t crack or shatter, like the cheaper polymer and acrylic grips are known to do. The color is dyed into the material, so scratches aren’t an issue. G10 grips will last a life time under normal use.
These grips are thinner than the stock grips. With the stock grips, the total thickness of the gun across the grips is ~1.41''. With our grips, it measures 1.17''. So these grips are approx .12'' thinner each than the stock grips. These grips are .025'' thicker than the thin aluminum grips (not much thicker - we had to add a little extra material for the heavy texturing on these grips).
We highly recommend only adding liners to solid color grips and choosing a contrasting color ie. Black grips with a liner in blue/orange/purple/cherry red/neon green/etc.
