Default Got my para back from the shop

I was able to get a Para P16 here used to build up for Limited USPSA shooting. It was in pretty decent shape but had a couple little flaws. Also needed new sights so I went all out and had my smith cut new sight channels and while he was at it put on a nice cerakote for me. I also gave it a good trigger job that took it down to 3 pounds and breaks like glass. Shoots so smooth and is more accurate than Ill ever be. Just want to show it off.

Beautiful. Question, when looking at the after picture it looks like a smooth front strap. Are you going to use grip tape?

The front strap isn't smooth. It has vertical serrations. I need to shoot it a lot to feel out what I need to do with grip. That's why I went with smooth metal grips so I can feel it out and modify as needed. Right now it actually felt good at the range but I need to get my hands sweaty to see how it will react when moving around. Grip tape is ALWAYS an option!!!
