    I have a 3" Sp101 coming back home this weekend after I traded it away a while back. It has the Hogue rubber grips that I put on it back then, and I've always wanted some nicer wood grips. I put a set of gorgeous wood grips from Hogue on my GP100 a couple years ago, and got a pretty good deal at the time from Amazon. But now I'm seeing the Hogues going for around $60, with other makers charging even more.
    There are some very nice looking grips on e-bay from an operation in Thailand that are very temtpting, at $45 delievered. The company does a good bit of buisness, with perfect feedback, but I thought I should research them a little more, and see if anyone has experience with them, or can recommend any other good options. Here's a link to the Thai-made grips on e-bay....

    As always, any input at all is much appreciated.......

    I know you want to save bucks, but the Badgers are worth the extra money. They are flawless in fit and finish.

    I agree with Chef Jeff. In fact, for only $10 more, you can get these. (ok fine, a little more than $10 once you factor in shipping)
    Hogue is top notch.

    Altamont is a great company.
    I broke a 1911 panel (on a belt sander) while sanding it to fit & they replaced both halves (free).
    All I had to do was send them the original set (to prove I broke it - I guess).

    Good product - great company
