Most times , I like the purely business look of the black grips. They go with the contrasting black controlls.

Since the pistol is an Elite, I vote for the Scorpions.

Scorpions look nicer in my opinion.

I like the black. If they were plastic the black would be a little boring but I think G10 makes even a solid color interesting since there are some contrasting shades/patterns with G10. The black gives the gun a classy formal look.

The Scorpion grips looks really good too and I bet the blue G-mascus grips would also be sweet if they were an option. The black I probably wouldn't get bored of though.

It's just a nice looking pistol so likely any quality grips would look good. Like a really hot chick at the beach, does it really matter what color her bikini is?

Scorpion but that's just me. I can understand the more traditional black

These smooth walnut grips (ebay) work for me (large palms) though I guess most want checkering. Gun in nickel, but similar enough to SS I guess.

Before making your choice, I think you should try on the Sig Branded Black / Gray Piranha grips to get that prospective, which should coordinate nicely with both the stainless, and black controls.

I believe Interior Decorators call it "Feng Shui"... and women would "LOVE IT"!!!

Stainless/white SIGs look best with black grips, imo.
