Lets see your wood grips
« on: April 30, 2012, 12:56:19 AM »
Well I put a CZ85 Combat on layaway yesterday ;D. Gonna pick it up in a couple of weeks. It was the only one I could find and it seems like a VERY nice weapon with a very nice trigger so I went ahead and put a payment on it. I however don't like the plastic grips. I want some nice wooden grips. Ive looked at both Hakan and Omegas sits but would like to see some of your guys big high resolution pics. I also looked at Hogue's website but the Hakan and Omegas look a lot better. If you guys have any other companies to look at I would appreciate suggestions.

Also how do you guys like a smooth finish? IMO the smooth looks a lot better than checkered. Can you grip it ok when shooting with hot sweaty hands? My gun is going to be a range toy and nightstand queen. How long are the finishes lasting on these custom grips?

So bring on the pics!

Not a CZ, but grips are a custom work by myself


After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.

Mimorr,

How would you compare those walnut grips with the CZ cocobolos?  Do the walnut grips have a similar profile?  Are they walnut grips wider, thinner or about the same as the cocobolos?

Thanks

I am wonder about the profile also.  When I saw them I thought they were these;





I was told that these were an old CZ style. They feel great just need something to put them on!

I didn't see anything on the website about the TS frame and don't know the frame differences. When I researched these I found a web "tutorial" from a guy that dremelized them to fit an EAA frame.

Hey! they are very similar, and both great.  Yes they have a similar profile, and as far as width they are both very thin (which i like)  however there are a few things that make me prefer the walnut grips 1)  I realized after owning both that i really prefer the half checkered pattern better. 2)  I like the cocos but they feel very generic and "machined" if that makes sense.  They are almost totally flat and straight where the walnuts have a lot more shape and contour especially for your thumb. 3)  The walnuts are NOT STAINED which I really love it gives them a very natural look and feel where as the coco's are very stained and glossy to the point where they almost look and feel like plastic. 4) I think that the walnut grips look better.  AGAIN they are both great but if i had to only have one it would clearly be the walnut.
