Ed Brown MSH/Magwell opinions please

I just picked up a new SA Target 9mm. I want to put a different MSH/Magwell on it and it has come down to the Snakeskin or the Chainlink. If anybody has one of these I would like your opinion on it as in likes and dislikes.

The Snakeskin looks cool but also looks like it's sharp. The Chainlink is the one I really like but it looks like it might get slippery when my hands get sweaty (big problem when hot at the range).

Thanks for your input, Punished1911

I've never held a snakeskin MSH, but I feel the same way about the grip. a little sweat and the gun may torque in the hand. Also, is there any other part of your gun that is snakeskinned? It may look out of place if you only have normal serrations and checkering on the gun.

Brainchild right now it's in stock form I picked it up last week and I want to put my personal touches on it. You are right if I have the front of the frame done it should match the MSH. I think I'll go with the chainlink and hope it's going to have a good grip.

Snakeskin is not very sharp at all, actually.

I have an EB Kobra (with the snakeskin msh)...
Alchemy is right. The snakeskin is not sharp or harsh at all. It is what I would describe as "grippy" in one direction but if you run your hand the other direction, it is smooth.
I replaced my msh housing with another EB snakeskin msh that was drilled for the removable maxi-well. When I did that, I took a few closeup pics of the original one in order to sell it.

I like the Chainlink and while it has the same grip in both directions and looks cool plain old checkering will get you more grip if that's what you are concerned about.
