Thought I would dress up the Les Baer a bit with some VZ grips and screws.. came out nice, but I had to use a little sandpaper on the grips because they were so damn sharp.

Operator II with Radiation II screws:

Picked up this Beretta 92D Centurian for the safe. Yea, I know it's DAO, but the trigger is pretty good and they are somewhat hard to find in great condition. This one is like brand new, not many rounds. Has a real nice feel in the hand. At $350 (used, no tax) I really couldn't pass it up.

Besides, this gives me an excuse to practice shooting and lighting firearms. :)

Figured it's Christmas, why not get myself some gifts.

I got the rubber O-rings but they made the screw sit less flush with the grip.. Running without and will re-visit them if the screws loosen up.

Was going to go with "dirty olive" but decided to go Hyenia Brown.. They are a bit darker in person

Wow, those grips are wild. How does the thickness compare to standard Baer grips?
I have a PII, and I've tried about every pair of grips I have on it. (About 10) Still go back to the thick, stock, ones.

Loctite Purple is the low-strength for gun screws.
