Good-Looking, Genuine Rosewood, Laminated For Extra Strength
Real Rosewood laminate grips are stronger, display a more consistent grain pattern, and have more uniform coloring than grips cut from a piece of natural wood. Checkered 18 lpi double-diamond-pattern provides excellent grip and handling. Beveled bottom edge has a cut-out for the mainspring housing; not cut for ambidextrous safeties. Available in Standard thickness or Slim grips that are 33% thinner to help minimize pistol profile for concealed carry or to accomodate shooter with small hands or large fingers.
