    The pics attached show the pins I am talking about. I originally installed he grips with only one pin, then I used both pins. I didn’t torque down to much on the grips when tighening (sp) but they seem nice and firm. I noticed on the Cobra the grips didn’t come with this second pin

    So a quick summary. The new grips for my King Cobra seem nice and solid. I am going to camp tomorrow to shoot a little bit but upon initial feel of the gun, the grips are solid. NOW my Colt CObra is another story and will have to contact VZ Grips next week. I am unsure of how well I will make out since I have had the grips for quite some time but maybe since a number of people have been having issues I will get some help from VZ.

    Have the Altamonts. Have to sand down some of the sharp edges. Otherwise, they are heavy but comfortable.

    I spoke to the VZ guys at the NRA convention at length about the problem I was having and they said they are waiting to get a King Cobra frame and rectify the fit problem. In the mean time I bought a set of Altamonts at the convention and just put them on. At first I thought I was going to have the same problem but after finally getting the frame pin that came with the grips centered everything came together. I'm happy to report though a pain to get on, the Altamonts are tight, also they look and feel great. I wish the VZs were this tight but I'm sure with their reputation they will fix the problem.

    Thanks Mag 318. Just put a set of VZs on my Cobra and used a piece of duct tape on the rear gripframe to take up a few thousands of looseness in the fit. Very difficult for a grip company to call it perfectly on frame dimensions, as frame dimensions change. Ruger SP is one example of same problem. Love the Altamonts great color and style.

    Mag, those Altamont stocks look great. I have a pair of their stocks on my Python and love the fit and finish of them.

    Mag318, the Altamont look great. I got a set of the blue black VZ and they fit my NMKC tight, and didn’t loosen up after firing. I did snug the screw down tighter than some people like though so maybe that had a bit to do with it also.

    I have Altamonts on both my Cobra and King Cobra. Excellent fit, no loosening.
    Sadly they do not fit my hand as well as I would like, so I am selling both sets and replacing them with something else.

    What don't you like about the fit? And what size are your hands?
