What grips are these??

I thought they were Hogue G10's in aluminum, but I ordered a set and they are much more silver then those in this picture. Sure look like G10s in the picture, but they are some sort of creme or ivory color. Angle of the photo? Sure doesn't look the same color as the silver gun. Help. Thanks.

They could be "Titanium", that Hogue is showing on their site, but no pictures... "Special Order" @ $1195.95! SIG Sauer P226 Titanium | Hogue Inc.

I say they are Hogue Aluminum.
If you look at the gun in the picture it is supposed to be a stainless steel model.
Looking close at the gun color it has a cream hue to it like the grips.

My opinion is that the dark tan background forced the camera to over correct its color correction algorithm.
It is also possible that the light source used gave the picture a warm overall look.

I love that model/year in the stainless. The stampings looks good, German framed, no beaver tail or front serrations. So clean looking. I have one just like it on the way. Will post pics when I get her.

G10 is a fiberglass laminate material, not to be confused with aluminum or titanium which of course are metals.

Good point. I ordered the metal type. The G10s didn't come in that color.

They are Hogue aluminum grips which come in both flat black, and that "clear" anodized white color.

P220ST Grips

This is my P220ST with Hogue Aluminum Sig grips. Mine too are a slightly different color than the gun itself. Still it was voted "sexeyist gun" at a recent Front Sight 4 Day Defensive Handgun class.

First of all - those grips look absolutely fantastic !! That being said, my experience was not the best with these Hogue aluminum grips. Despite the checkering I found them to be a little bit slippery as I was trying to shoot my friend's 226 and my palm was just a little bit sweaty.
