you have two material choices, wood or aluminum

Nils makes outstanding wood grips and there's someone else...i think it's marschal or something like that. Hogue is introducing new sets in aluminum in about a month

....and they all cost way more than $100.

I'll be surprised if, a year from now, we can't buy quality aftermarket magazines and more reasonably priced grips for the P6. With 40000 of these pistols in the country at such a low price, there's going to be thousands of people looking to spend some money on them.

I can't justify spending $175 for wooden grips for a $250 pistol :eek:

well...when Pachmyer rubber grips are going for over $150, i think the Al ones seem like a better deal.

i understand it cost Hogue $30k to set up for new grips

Hogue once made P225 grips, and I would assume they still have the mold, and/or pattern for wood grips.

It would seem to me all it would take is enough people asking for them again.

that isn't what Ken@ Hogue Inc says...on a thread on the Sigforum...that's why they are introducing the Extreme Aluminum one's first

Well, if they can come up with some inert, cold & heat proof aluminum grips, I might buy some.

My guns get too hot & cold in Kansas weather already, without metal grips.
