    Default Anybody using jeweled grip screws from Wicked Grips?

    My T9 is kind of a showpiece---I've polished it to a mirror finish, and of course it has wood grips, but I'd like to dress it up a bit. I like the idea of jeweled grip screws, and I think the white CZ would look cool. Anyone using these?

    What, no Lapis blue???

    Seriously -- not what I was expecting to see -- I expected to see "jeweled" as in "engine turning" with rows of small 1/2-overlapping round circles cut with an abrasive dowel or brush, as is commonly done on high-end rifle bolts or shotgun water tables. But I was wondering how they'd fit all the overlapping circles and rows on such a small part..........

    Now I know... But sorta wish I didn't!

    I kind of like the look their punisher screws

    While not Wicked Grips jewel screws, I do have sculpted, multi hue screws on my CZ75 SP-01. I've come to like them and think they are a little jewel/gem like.

    I consider most of my guns tools. Clean as a whistle inside and cared for outside but I don't worry about a little scratch. If I didn't think that way I would drive myself crazy.
    But I sure understand show pieces......WOW!

    General Patton once recommended those for a lady-friend's pistol with mother of pearl grips.
