Recently acquired an STI Elektra in black. Don't mind the pearlescent grips, but really prefer something in wood. Wasn't finding anything I liked. Then thought it might be nice to find a set of grips off an STI Escort. Couldn't find any. I'm lucky to live about a mile from STI. So I dropped by on the off chance they might have an old set of Escort grips laying around they'd sell me ( they no longer make the Escort or the Elektra ). So a really nice guy greets me ( I'm pissed at myself for not catching his name ), and says he'll go across the street to the other building to see what he might find. About 15 minutes later he returns with three sets of grips. Another set of black pearlescent like the ones already on my pistol ( after a side by side, these have a better pattern than the ones I already have ), a set of red pearlescent ( thought these might look good on the black frame ), and the wood Escort grips I was really looking for. So I ask how much for each pair, and he says no charge, they're yours. I've read a lot of positive posts about the customer service at STI. Today, I got to experience it first hand. The pic of the black grips are the original set that came with the pistol. The set he gave me are better. And I do like the red.
