What finish do you have on your gun and what look do you want? I've got the 320's in black canvas on my RIA 38 super in bright nickle finish. I'll see if I can get a picture up, for some reason I can't connect my camera to my mac right now

Only two VZ grips I have, but they work quite well. Diamondback on top and double diamond on bottom, both in sand/black. The Diamond back with the 5 lpi checkering was pretty aggressive but provided great traction.

Richard, you have great taste. I always enjoy seeing your collections.

Is that the slim VZ? I have one coming with a Milspec Custom that I just bought & want to add SA Mag Well Guide like yours. Does it match well with the mag well since it's a slim version(if it is?)

Thanks, these are the standard thickness grips. It does mate pretty well with the standard S&A magwell in thickness.
