I got in a set of the thin Alumagrips today from Thunder Ranch for my TRS. I think they really set off the NP3+. What do you guys think?

Did you take that photo as well? If so... BRAVO!....

That is a SLICK setup right there!

Thanks, Brian.....It certainly is a different look, that is for sure. I kind of like it for that reason. I am really starting to give a little harder look at the Alumagrips. I had never dealt with them until you ordered your NN with them. The more I mess with them, the more they are growing on me.

Thanks Bulldog. Yes, I did take the picture. Still working on my photography skills, though. I still have some shadows I am contending with.

It looks nice but I think a black set of grips might even look better. :cool:

Dave, I think it looks like poo. You should send it to me for proper disposal. :whistling:

I agree....Unfortunately, Thunder Ranch does not offer the thin TRS grips in black. I kind of wanted to stick with the Thunder Ranch theme on this specific pistol.

What a shame. :crying:

That contrast would look awesome.

:wow:

I actually like that color combo quite a bit. I'm looking for a similar solid gray color for my HC SRP.

I think it looks great. Is that a stainless finish or hardchrome?

I was thinking that Sig Sauer's aluminum grips would look good on my P226, but the best price I could find was $158 bucks, which I think is a bit pricey for grips on a $800.00 gun.

NP3 Plus, Joe. I have never had much luck getting the true color in pictures of the NP3. The grips are actually a very subtle olive color.

The good ol' P226. My issue sidearm for 10.5 years during my Navy days. I wish I had a dollar for every round I have shot through one of those bad boys.....It is the only Sig I still own. (NSW P226 Navy) Great pistol!!!

You're fortunate. I had to carry the POS Beretta M9 after they took my M1911A1 away from me.

Glad to see you are still alive, Joe. Have they relieved the suicide watch after Saturday night yet? :)

:agree:

Its a unique look. I think its the only pic of an NP3ed Baer I've seen.

I really like the look of the NP3Plus Baer, and the grips. If I ever get a gun refinished, it will be NP3 or NP3 plus.
