Not sure if this is an aftermarket grip or not. These are file photos off the web.
I've only seen a couple of these grips, in photos, and only on Silver chromes.
Perhaps it's some sort of short-lived OEM grip - maybe an aftermarket extra.
At first it was thought they were some sort of plastic, but they're most likely wood with the Browning Buck logo impressed into it.

Okay, it's an FEG with Hogue rubber grips. Superb ergonomically but a little thick for reaching the factory small safety. I'm going to try the pachmayr signature wrap around rubber grips soon.

If the Hogue wrap around makes the grip too thick, what make you think the Pachmayr wrap around is significantly thinner?

Get a set of thin panel grips.

Same 69C as above before the ambi and a trip to Novak. Grips are Herrett's Cocobolo from CDNN.
Found out that the Herretts are too big for me and I switched to the Navidrex.
Aside from that the Herretts are really great grips from one of the Old School names in grip making.
Brownells sells them now in different woods.

FEG HP in 40 S&W with tung-oiled Navidrex Philippine Mahogany grips.

I've always wondered about how many of what kinds of tongues get pressed to make a can of this stuff...

That's a beauty, Burgs. Regarding the color of the finish on the pistol, is it as dark as it appears, almost black?

Mister Coffee,

Absolutely. Almost like a black mirror. It's never had a malfunction, ever. Shoots really straight too.

Here's some other photos taken after the SFS and Garthwaite trigger were added. Same Navidrex grips.

Thank You for the kind words.

Dang you guys... Because of this thread, I had to dig these things out.

They're half-checkered cocobolo by Esmeralda. I don't ever use them, but I haven't been able to bring myself to sell them. They're sort of thick, and they're so pretty I'd cry if anything happened to them, so they sit in a box. Saying it out loud (or in writing) makes me feel even dumber about it.

I have a similar thought any time I use molasses. Think about it -- how many moles would it take to fill a jar?

BHP aftermarket grip photo thread . Show us your grips :^)

Burgs, that gun looks great with any grips.
I love the S&W sight conversion. And the finish. And the newer FN logo.
How do you like the Hogues compared to the Spegels? Do they have a similar profile? On the Hogues, is the border standard for the full checkered grips, or was that an option?

MLB,

Thank you for the kind words.
The conversion was done by my tame gunsmith, Old George.


Grips: For me personally, the Spegels are a bit fat. Same with Esmeraldas.

You can almost think of the Hogues as wood VZs - they feel about the same to me. As far as I know, the border is a feature of the Hogues with the custom full checkering (a whole $10 extra and about 6-8 weeks wait). With my small to medium hands I prefer a slim grip.

Here's a better photo I got off the web of the interesting wood grips that apparently shipped with some Silver Chrome Hi Powers. (top)

Not aftermarket grips, but interesting nonetheless. These are the OEM military-style grips that came with my "Lithuanian Police" .40 S&W FEG Hi Power.

They are very thin - thinner than VZs - but instead of having the usual checkered pattern on the grip it's stippled. I haven't noticed this grip on any other pistol before.

I don't why but I love the looks of crimson trace HP grips on hard chrome. But good Lord they are expensive!! Wish they just made the grips without the laser.
