Navidrex also makes a thin Teak wood grip. It looks pretty nondescript when you first look at it, but a couple of thick applications of boiled linseed oil on both sides (each coat allowed to sit for a few days to be absorbed) produced some very nice looking stocks...

FWIW

Let us know how you like them. VZ grips are a little bit thicker than Navidrex, but not by much. I've read that Hogue wood is about as thick as VZs, but it's been years since I've shot them on a friend's gun. They weren't thick though.

Looks like the silver chrome

I called them and they said they must have changed the grip styling, which I find kind of strange, cause they're assigned to the same part number.

Anyway, does anyone happen to know where I can find the grips shown on my Practical model?

Shown below my pistol are the grips they sent me.

Thanks in advance for your responses.
finish to me. I had one in the older Satin Nickel...I have one in Nickel now that looks close to chrome.
As to the grips I would suggest looking at either Ebay or Gunbroker. I'm pretty certain you can find what you want on Ebay.

Jim's1911C,

There's been a lot of photos floating around on this thread, so I had to double check, but Kopazzz's Hi Power is a Practical.

Practicals have epoxy slides over hard chromed frames, whilst the Silver Chromes have hard chromed slides and frames and gold triggers.

Burgs,
I have two BHP's, one a Practical model and one a T series standard in blue. The one shown at the beginning of the thread is the Practical, the one at the end of the thread is the T series.

Kopazz,

I'm with you. I think that Jim thinks it's a Silver Chrome, unless he means Joe Rock's or Bugaboo's pistols by mistake.

No problem; I do appreciate all the information you provide on the forum.

Gonna look into that, though I love the black on black "black beauty" look, i love the contrast as well. Thanks for the info...

One comment on searching eBay or Amazon, or any other search engine for that matter. Search using the spellings "Hi Power" and "High Power". Sometimes it makes quite a difference as to what products get displayed.
