    I just thought I'd change up the look a bit on my new 92 FS. I have rather large hands so grip size on on the original plastic grips works for me but I also ordered the walnut and aluminum from Beretta. I haven't been to the range yet but I'm sure they'll both work out fine. The aluminum are slightly slimmer but with more aggressive checkering than the original plastic ones. The walnut are slightly thicker and smoother than the plastic. I look the look or all three. Thanks for looking.

    Both look great though I have a definite preference for the aluminum set.

    I have always liked wood grips. That is what mine have but the other one looks great also. I think the 92fs is the best looking gun out there. I wish it came in .45.

    Wood grips look great. But Everytime I go to the range, I find them too slippery.

    Now,, those aluminum grips. I have held a 92 with them before. They are awesome.

    I haven't tried the aluminum yet. Is the checkering very aggressive? A few years back I ended up getting a Browning Pro over and FNH FNX because the checkering on the FNH was too aggressive for me.

    Thank you all for the replies. I will be going to the range this week and next week

    with different grips. I will be trying the wood first. They do feel smooth in the hand on dry firing but I have a fairly firm grip hold and don't anticipate any problems.

    The aluminum grips feel very aggressive but are somewhat slimmer and therefore very comfortable. They are slimmer and more aggressive than the stock grips which I like but I thought I'd give both of these a try.

    Thanks again,

    GSY
