    Looking good. I have the digi camo ones on my C9. Still on the fence as far as the look goes.

    I ordered those grips. They looked better in my mind. I feel like if I could make the slide more two tone they would look better on the gun

    I'm thinking of doing mine like this 45, but with the digital grips.

    Just installed the carbon fiber grips on my 380 this afternoon. My wife and I both like them a LOT.

    Damn, like those. I got the American flag ones on one of my C9's, and I think that would look good on the other.

    Sure beats the hell out of my ductape grips what did those run you?
     
  11. steve_086, check out the Hi Point site. I think they're like $20.

    I stand corrected, they're $17


    I like how the carbon fiber grips look. Thinking about having my 995 dipped in carbon fiber. But I'm not sure. I think the carbon fiber needs to be offset by black, looks good on the C9 grips but I half way think a whole stock would be too much and not enough black to offset it.

    All it takes is a little sand paper and a multitool with v a buffing wheel and a little polishing compound start with rough to tear down that pwder coat thats some though stuff i started with. 80,150,180,220,400,600,800,2000,Then polish to a shine you problably dont ave to go through the grains like that you can skip the 180 and even the 600 but move through the grains in step
