My nitpick with Altamont, is that sometimes the grips look too good to belong an a particular gun. They make some nice looking Smith grips, but the checkering to too fine. They look too perfect to belong on an average shooting gun

Their Colt medallions are weird too. They are way too shiny for my tastes.

Nutmeg still has some old stock full checkered walnut grips with medallions listed.
