      Aluminum Grips for Kimber Solo?

      I NEED a set of custom grips for a Kimber Solo... Any idea if there is a company/individual who can make them? Oh yeah... I want aluminum grips.

      Thanks.

      I've been searching for weeks... Getting tired of it.

      Here ya are, ma'am..... Alumagrips - Sig P238 May I suggest that you try a pair of aluminum grips before you buy a pair. They don't provide nearly as much grip as the checkered wood, or G-10, or VZ grips. Aluminum grips came on one of my Sig's, and after the first range session, I swapped 'em off for G-10 grips... personal preference of course.

      I really appreciate your reply, but I already tried alumagrips. The owner said he doesn't make any that would fit my gun. Thanks for the advice. I haven't tried aluminum grips. Thought, I am sending them in to be engraved, so that could help with grip, right?

      I think the engraving might have to be pretty extensive to be effective. You might check with a gun dealer, close to you and see if they have any in stock that you could get a look at.

      I'm sorry. I obviously missed the Kimber Solo part. I was trying, though....

      so looks like its time to buy some aluminum stock and a dremel and make your own set of grips!

      should be fairly easy to find a set of grips from a full size auto..... fit the top hole, measure to the new bottom hole and then trim down the excess using the original grip as a reversed template.

      easy peasy
