Altamont has some nice grips.
I am looking for all options for grips for the New Cobra. Searching through posts hasn't shown many options. VZ and Herrett. The gun with factor rubber grips carries nicely in my overall pocket with or without a holster. I prefer to carry without. My hands are large, they are a snug fit in XXL gloves.
I would like to have your experiences and how the grips fit the gun and what size hand they work with. Also if there are any reports of makers that will be introducing new grips. Thanks for your help.
I have Altamonts on my Python, I like the quality and the fit.
I put these VZs on my new King Cobra but after my initial range session they started to wiggle so something is out of spec. I sent them back to VZ for replacement this morning for another set. Even with the set pin and screwed in tight I still experienced wiggle at the top. VZ makes great products so I'm hopeful the next set will fit better. In the mean time the Hogue factory original grips are back in place.
Anyone else experience loose fitting with the VZ or Altamont Cobra grips?

Granted my Altamont stocks are on a Python but they fit very well; I have put a few hundred rounds through the gun since fitting them and they haven't budged one bit.
I have the factory medallion Altamonts on my Cobra Classic. After 220 rounds of .38 spl and .38+p they are as tight as they were when it was new.
Just got my replacement VZ grips and decided to try the Operator II style with aggressive checkering. They look great on the King Cobra but once again they fit loose at the top. Called VZ and they are very concerned and think it may be the frame. Now Colt states that the King Cobra and Cobra have the exact same grip frame so aftermarket grips should fit. Here's a YouTube video I also sent VZ.

Bob that's a very interesting thread. These grips feel great but that wiggle is driving me nuts. I could try some tape to tighten them up but for the price I paid I want a perfect fit from the factory.
