R9 Prototype

Here is one most have probably not seen. The grips appear quite thick but this may be due to the slidelock assembly.

Some nice ivory grips on my Robar R9s would look pretty cool, actually.   ;)

Yep!  Sure would, however, those in the above picture, as John mentions, appear thicker, and have that ridge down the grip, is why I say "sorta" on these particular grips.

Agreed. That is the only thing about having a relatively rare, niche gun. Hard to find any accessories to "personalize" it.   ;)
