I ordered these grips pictured below from Kimber thinking the picture was just sh***ty and they would be darker in person but no... they look as hideous as the picture shows. I can't find those darker grips (above) anywhere. Dangit! Pleeeease help.

Kimber, GunBroker, E-Bay, Brownells, Midway USA?

Tried all of those. Struck out with each. All I can find are those lighter colored ones.

Probably just the lighting on their pic ?

I believe there is also a disclaimer on their website about them, due to variances in the supplied materials, they may not match the picture.

Good luck in your search for what you're after.

Now that i've looked at their stock again, I *think* you got these:

Which come on the eclipse.

And these are the ones you wanted :

http://store.kimberamerica.com/Products/tabid/67/CategoryID/4/ProductID/1558/PageIndex/1/Default.aspx

The first ones for the eclipse match what you posted with the not having a logo in the center, the ones shown on the tactical like you want match the 2nd link with the logo on them.

Those are the exact same ones that I ordered from Kimber (Model # 1100162A). From the picture they look like they would be the darker ones that I want but they aren't. Kimber has a horrible picture on their website!

Are you sure Kimber didn't send you the wrong grips? The ones you posted in your original post under the gun have no logo. The ones that you linked to above and said you got have the logo :dunno:.

The ones I ordered are the model # 1100162A. They do have the Kimber imprint in the side but they are a very light gray. I only posted the pic of the light gray one above to show how they look in person.
