http://raascogrips.com/fd093.html 2 Questions:

1) What do you think of these? Quality, durability, looks. (They will be going on a black Vbob)

2) Do these darken with use? I have a pair of VZ's that do and I just don't prefer the way they look when they darken.

I've never held grips that were half-checkered either. I'm sure some here have and can tell me what they think...

Half checkered wood grips are among my favorite.

Quack had a pair of Raasco half-checkered grips on his Kobra Carry and he spoke highly of them. Seems a pretty decent pair of grips for the money.

I wonder how they might compare to a nice half-checkered pair of Esmeralda's grips...I love the look of hers I just can't justify spending the money.

Nothing against Esmerelda, but if I am dropping a Benjamin+ on a pair of grips, they are going to be from Sarge. Maybe it's just me, but I don't care for all the Celtic stuff and so forth she does, and all of her grips more or less look the same to me. Ryan's grips are simply gorgeous and the look varies quite a bit with all of his choices of wood. Just my $.02.

That is the same exact way I feel when looking at her grips. I never got what the big deal was with her grips.

Don't get me wrong, they are top notch, but for the money, I prefer Ryan's grips if I was buying wood. Larry for G10.

I just received a pair of her half-checkered grips this past Saturday. Great quality with a lot of attention to detail. Truly a beautiful pair of grips. My camera is dead right now but if I can get a decent picture of them later I will post it up.

I would wonder if you had said "When I need wood, I think of Sarge". :rofl:

Sarge does great work, but.............

I've bought 3 different sets of grips from Raasco for various 1911's, all have been top notch and have exceeded my expectations. For the money, you can't go wrong and he's just a damn good guy also. Ships very fast.

The difference between Esmerlda and Raasco is that Esmerelda uses real wood and Raasco uses Dymondwood.

Here's a set of Raasco's that are "Cocobolo".
