Have an idea on the price?

Somewhere around the $30-$35 range for the polymer version. The aluminum version will be priced competitively for what's currently available on the market.

And colors?

Possibly, still not sure how long I'll produce the polymer version for. These are more or less to hold you guys over a bit longer so I can get the CNC grips finalized.

Polymer will be..... looked at injection molding and a set of dies cost $15,000. There's no way I could keep the cost go if dropping that much money on just a set of does....

Got mine. Better video that really lets you see the contours:

 

 

 

First impressions?

 

I was concerned they'd be too wide. They feel amazing.

 

I can't imagine needing more traction. Dragging the gun down your forearm will leave scratches if you apply much pressure.

 

No gaps and I like the way Joe used the screw head as an interference-fit with the hole to keep them from walking around. ;) 

 

They are slightly harder to reach the mag catch on than a Henning or Scales grip. But only the slightest bit, and they're way better than factory wood grips. After a few dry reloads I don't see the need to carve a channel into them.

460 grains for the pair, without the screws.  Mine are early prototypes and that may not be the current exact weight, but probably dang close.

Here are some halfway decent images you're welcome to use on your website or social media, if you want. I don't do photos professionally anymore so it's cool with me - they're just screencaps from the original HD video on my phone anyway.
