I have decided to add G10 grips to a couple of my P series pistols. I picked up some checkered G10 Hogue grips for my p239 a couple years ago and I loved them. Then I got a p225A1 with G10 grips and it's fantastic. Recently I bought one of the very inexpensive sets of G10 magwell grips from CDNN for like $25. I’m finding that I have a strong preference for the pistols that have G10 grips and now I’d like to get a set for a P226 and a P229. Looking around, I’ve seen some grips on ebay from cool hand (?). My question is, has anyone tried any G10 grips other than Hogue? I included a link below. They appear to be a copy of the Hogue grips (with a little additional checkering by the slide stop) and if the profile and fit/finish are the same I’m inclined to try a pair and save $20 or so. I'd add that if anyone wants to trade G10's for E2 grips (plus money from me) I have several sets of E2 grips laying around and I'm about to have even more.

They look good, BUT who are they made by?? Hogue and Sig polymer grips have a lot of intricacy; and on the G-10's machining on the inside of the grips for proper clearances and fit for reliable operation of the pistol.
This note on the ebay listing is concerning.
Note: Sig Sauer recently changed the design of Stainless Elite P226. There is a new cut at the frame bottom of pistols with serial number 47A146757 and above. Our grips will need a slight modification to fit the new designed P226.
"A slight modification"?? The old saying "you get what you pay for"

Hogue G10 Checkered grips are really cool. On my 226 Legion and 225-A1. Had them on a traded P239.
Got a new P220 Equinox last month. The Blackwood grips looked nice, but too fat and way too slick. Got a set of Hogue, Solid Black Piranha grips from Optic Planet.
Slightly more aggressive than
Checkered grips and transformed the 220 to a slim grip and looks, and feels amazing.

I have g10 grips in my p226 Extreme and I love them. I bought a set of VZ g10 grips for my Ruger SR1911 CMD. Unfortunately the texture in the VZ g10 grips is not at all like the Hogue g10 grips that came with my p226. The VZ grips were much "too aggressive". I tried sanding them down but ended up going back to the stock Ruger wooden grips.

Maybe I should have looked at the VZ 320s grips first, since those are apparently the smoothest grips made by VZ. (I guess I should have learned to read sooner, too, since it's clearly mentioned on their site. LOL)
I was also interested in getting a new set of VZ grips for my P226 Mk25, but I just looked on VZ's site and it seems they're only offering grips for the P238 and P938 right now:
That's a bit of a bummer.

I'm considering purchasing the G10 checkered grips for my p229. I like my E2 grips but those green G10 checkered grips look [email protected] Has anyone switched from the E2's to the G10 checkered and if so are they similar in profile/width? The E2's are comfortable for my hand and I don't want grips that are wider. Any advice is appreciated!
