    Default New grip screws completely change the look of my beat up TRP

    I put some some new grip screws on my beat up Springfield Armory TRP and think they complete the change of it's look.
    It will never be a Barbecue gun, but I like the change. Is there such a thing as a campfire gun?

    With the old screws:


    With the new screws:

    I don't know pal, looks like it might make the cut for BBQ gun to me. If there wasn't a campfire gun category, there should be.

    Do love those grips.

    Grip screws do help a lot on some guns. Looks good.
    I recently did the same on a couple of my Sigs.

    I like the grips quite a bit myself. I must have been living right when I bid on them. The auction was for these and a set of G10 grips. Nobody else bid, so they were mine for under $110 shipped.
    Auction photo:

    The bottom screws did sit a little proud on both sides. I think you can just see that in this auction photo (nice that he had them on a TRP):

    I put slim bushings on the bottom and that fixed that!

    Those are some good looking SIGs!

    I've got a set of fancy, psychedelic screws on my SP-01. I was going to plate them with black nickel, but the more I looked at them, the more I thought they are kind of jewel like and I left them as is.

    That's part of the fun, playing around with grips and stuff. I got a bunch of crap for swapping out the grips on my Legion. But hey we do it because we can :=]

    Sometimes have to get creative with stag/horn/etc. Can't control the thickness like wood and stuff. I have a few with mismatched bushings too.
    Only your grip installer knows for sure.

    Wow, wow, wow, they sure are beauties!

    SO the convict told me that a barbecue gun is a show gun......I always thought you shot holes through the meat to tenderize the meat before you grilled it!!!!!!!

    Greg the convict wants me to tell you that it looks like you also "sliped" in a short trigger in that TRP!
    Now you have renewed his desire for a TRP that has been simmering in the back of his future gun list!!!!

    DARN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! we were hoping to come your way this winter, but it won't happen. The convict's Mother (yes, I know it's hard to believe that he actually has a MOM
    ........she is very cool) is 94, and living on her own and we think we better stick close to home this year................OTHERWISE we would beg to see your collection and
    SHOP!!!!!
