Walnut Grips Really Make A Difference !
I decided to jazz up my Beretta 92 FS 9 MM with some nice Walnut factory Beretta grips, and a little gold fill in the lettering on the slide. The bottom photo show it the day I bought it. I really like the way it turned out. I got this gun a few years back at Cabela's on sale. Plus I had one of those "$50.00 Off" coupons they sent me in the mail. I never really liked the cheap plastic grips, so I found these on Amazon for $42.00 and ordered them. They came in just 3 days.
The original screws fit, but I couldn't use the star lock washers they had installed from the factory with the plastic grips. The gold fill was from a Bonanza Gold fill kit I ordered from Midway, and had used on some other guns. It's easy to do, and it really lasts and isn't effected by cleaning solvents or oil. I did the receiver on my Remington 1100 Trap gun in silver about 40 years ago, and it still looks like the day I did it. I like doing this to plain Jane factory guns. It kind of personalizes them, and they look a lot better.
