    Still working with Hogue to get minimum number, etc. I will post pics of options as soon as I figure out how to do so.

    Bawanna,

    I just remember you from years back. I was more of a lurker than an active participant.

    This. I don't know how grippy the un-checked wood is, but that's what looks best on the MKs, imho - wood grain, no check, no k

    I could go either way, K or not. But for a defensive handgun I want a sure grip. Never know when water or even blood might be present to compromise your grip. Though I do also like the looks of an uncheckered grip, sometimes better than checkering depending on the gun and the grip combo. It's great to have choices, and given the chance to grab a set of nice grips from Hogue for a good price I wouldn't mind equipping my MK40 with a set.

    It all depends on the wood. Sometimes checkering hardly shows up at all, other times it takes away from the grain pattern and beauty of the wood.
    When I don't checker I just put a strip of skate board tape, I like the rubbery kind, not the gritty stuff on the front strap.
    Provides the desired good grip and one can leave the wood smooth and pretty.

    I got some research to do, I made a set on my K40 and then went to put them on my K9 and they don't fit for beans. I spent a couple hours yesterday doing fine tuning and still not happy. Never had that issue before, the research continues. They are both early versions and I think I've swapped grips on them before, maybe it was a full moon or something????

    I'd also like to see Hogue make the original soft flexible rubber grips like they used to on the early models. Kind of like the overmold stocks they made. I'm a wood guy but for all practical purposes, those who don't care for looks or beauty of natural "real" wood, they are the best thing going. It's sacrilege but I might just put them back on my K9, maybe get some respect out of the wood.

    A nice walnut grip similar to the beautiful Nill grips would be nice on a K9. I'm not sure they would replace the CT laser grips though. I'd have to think about it.

    Great idea and I appreciate your initiative.

    This sounds like something I could be interested in. I have a large hand, would the Hogue Grips be thicker (in panel width) than the Kahr wood grips or would they be the same thickness... less the "K" emblem?

    The Kahr wood grips are made by Hogue so pretty much the same thing. Hogue may offer the grips without the K, I'm not certain about that. Looking at the Kahr site which I haven't done in a long time I noticed what they called soft rubber grips, like the early K and MK models or at least they look like that. If they are what I think they are that's a good thing. Much as I like wood the early soft rubber grips were far better than the harder tupperware grips on the later models.

    Sent me scurrying to the Kahr site - would welcome k-style grips for mk, pm, cw - but I could find them only for Magnum Research.

    K and MK could happen, the rest are tupperware frames with no removable grips. Years ago I had a get rich scheme of making wood panels for a Glock to improve the asthetics and provide some personality. Decided it just wasn't feasible.
