Richard - if you happen to have a pic of your P7 with the Micarda grips would you mind sharing?
I sure would like to see how those look on the gun.

I don't recall seeing them.

If you don't have a pic, please do not go the trouble of setting up and taking one.

Thanks

The Micartas are the toughest grips I've ever had. They seem almost immune from accidental damage.

Thank you, Brenden. Pete Foldyna made the Micarta grips. Here is a link to his website:

Reinz.  You're going to have to quit looking.  You're going to get sick.    ;D

....we are "making chips" as I type on a pair of cocobolo R9 grips...

In the past I have made a few grips from wood for the P7, but, like Nills, they will break eventually if used for daily carry. I have a small box full of broken ones. (Nills) I have contemplated inserting a piece of titanium epoxied into the back of them to beef them up but haven't tried it yet. Thats what the scrap Nills are for....testing theories

BTW: here is mine

There's just nothing like a good looking P7! :D


I think Richard has the right idea with those micartas.

I try!  It's getting tougher, though.    :D
