    A few months back I was looking for a set of grips for a J frame and as much as I liked the look of the gray g10 pachys I couldn’t find any to feel, and $60 shipped was more than I wanted to risk on it because the shape is like my Taurus 327 grips which I disliked. Today I ran across a “used” set at a shop I used to frequent. Appear to be new out of package, possibly installed but seldom used. $18. I like the texture, but still not fond of the shape.

    Is anybody using these on a carry gun? I’m considering putting them on the Taurus 327 and protecting the nice wood grips I bought for it.

    The only guns I have them on right now are a Colt Defender and a Sig 1911. I like the no-slip grip, and they don't seem to hang up on cover garments.

    G10 grips are easily adjusted by sanding FYI if there a certain part of the shape that’s bothering your hand

    Be aware that G10 dust can be very dangerous and you should wear a mask/respirator when working with it

    G-10 is a laminate of resin and fiberglass. The resin is toxic, when heated and the fumes get into the lungs. Fiberglass is just that: glass. Once those shards get into your lungs, they'll likely never come out.
