Does no one make a aftermarket or different style grip for the metal lowers g3 sp89 ...like a non finger groove ?? Anyone mod theirs ? Pics ? Seems to be odd I can't find a rubber grip or non finger groove replacement . I have been thinking about attempting to mill one one downs stiple forth usp style grip .... Surely one of you has this done ..

I emailed Mr Downey last night and he is still making these. I am a lefty and am going to get a lefty grip for an HK 94 meta grip frame. Thanks for posting the link.

There was a US company that made a Navy style grip that fit the steel frame. IIRC, it was Falcon or Ergo or somebody like that. I've got a couple of them, they aren't bad if you want something slimmer. I like the steel frames, I wish somebody would make a nice modern Hogue/Ergo type one for them. Comfy and a US made part too.

These are no longer in production. They are also fragile as they have a tendency to crack due to the thin walls, at least mine did anyway. If they made them out of an injection molded material they may have been better. They were a cast urethane which can be brittle.

Fleming (like the sear) makes metal lower housings that accept AR grips if there is something you prefer there.

Some years ago, Falcon (now ERGO grips) made a grip that went on metal lowers to replace the contour grip (PTOguy mentions this). It was in the shape of the plastic "Navy" grip:

Very timely thread. Just about an hour ago I received from Jdowny one of his PSG1 Wood Grips. I have to say that the pic's don't do them justice. When you hold this grip in your hand, you start to really appreiciate the work that went into making it look & feel great!!! I wood definitely suggest getting one of his wood grips!



I got this PSG1 Grip from John with the Steel Clipped-n-Pinned Paint-over-Park Lower (he got the Lower from RobertRTG). It Just Looks GREAT !!!



My plan is to send the Grip Frame and a Trigger Group to William Trigger Specialist, and have them perform their WTSG1 Set Trigger Modification to it. I would really like to find someone who could make what Williams used to make, their "Countoured Trigger". I had one done around '90, but, it got sold off. If you've ever shot a rifle with a Williams Contoured Set Trigger Group, then you know why I want to replace it.

Thanks John,
Chief

If you buy and install a Fleming trigger housing (lower) you can choose from a myriad of AR15 grips and trigger guards..

I'm starting a new wood products business where I may make custom C series and AR15 style wood grips from exotic woods such as music wood maple, honeylocust and red ebony. I own timberland

Thought I'd drop in and say hi. You guys have pretty much covered it, I'll just add that I sent RTG 4 left hand grips with one of the first batches they bought. Anyone looking for a lefty standard shape can check there too, he may still have a few since I don't recall ever seeing that option listed. You can always get a lefty direct from me, either standard or a custom shape.

Falcon Industries is right up the highway from my town (ok, an hour away, but that is close by local standards :wink:). I'm always tempted to stop in and see what they know.

Blitzkrieg, you should definitely give it a shot. Make some samples and see what people think of them, I thought I was going to sell maybe 10 grips, I'm now somewhere north of 500 (stopped counting). Doesn't sound like you need any pointers, but feel free to ask if you think I can give you any advice.

That's hot with the wood grip. Nice!!

I was thrilled to get tbostic to get a plastic grip like that on my sl8. 1,000,000 times better then a thumbhole.
