The R Grips




I really like the looks of my pair of standard R1s and don't plan to alter them in any way. I do however really like the optional grips with the "R" medallions. I ordered 2 sets which arrived today. Upon examining the grips I was really upset. The medallions were set into the wood in a haphazard way with the R pointing in various directions. I was going to return them to the vendor but noticed that there was a through hole in each grip begind the metal medallion. I inserted a finishing nail into the hole and a light tap disloged the medallions which I was able to straighten and secure with super glue. Now the guns are really cool.

May I suggest twin shoulder holsters (right/left) as Bruce Willis used in Last Man Standing.
