    Which do you all think looks better? OD Green is a simple Krylon rattle can job...just washed with soap and water, dried, and sprayed so no big investment in time or money if anyone thinks it looks bad. The dark wood grain are the Hi-Point grips.

    I like the wood grain, but I am old.

    I like wood as well.

    Not because I am old, but because they look better.:p

    Easy darlin', some opportunistic pervy mole or sick pup might use that statement against you.

    yeah I wanted to try something new. the OD while more military looking just did not seem to look as good as the wood grain. sometimes you have an imagination of what something is going to look like but the reality does not quite live up to it. thanks for the feedback and I am going to go back to the wood grain. Maybe I'll try painting the grips TorRed to match my car...hmmm

    May seem odd, but I put a coat of clear on my plastic grips and it seemed to brighten them up, as it would do to wood. Bigern did the same to his JHP plastiwood grips and they look great also. I suppose it's what you like as far as the gloss or darker satin look.

    If I'm not mistaken, that is the one-off Joey original that Macho bought?
