    Nope. I'd replace them. I'm partial to the fully checkered with the Colt medallion inset...like these...

    You mean these?

    This was one of my wife's birthday gifts a while back. I actually kind of like them, as they are a current version of what Colt is producing. If I was going for the old school look, I'd not get a stainless gun with combat style sights to begin with.

    I'm getting a red/black VZ grip for my Night Cobra as well, to replace the all black one it came with. No real reason other than I'd like to try something with a bit more texture than the factory offering and I like red. Red and black go together, as do blue and stainless I think.

    I kinda like them. They look better on a blued gun though. They feel great in my hand when shooting, but, as with all new things it took some getting used to.

    I also like them on a blued gun. I have a new red/black set on my Commander, but I’d rather have the blue/black. Anyone wanna trade.

    I like how the Colt logo VZ grips look and feel. I kept the blue ones that came on my 9mm Gold Cup. On my .38 Super Competition I replaced the blue grips with grey/black ones without a thumb notch for the magazine release.

    I have left them on the Gold Cup Lite I bought in 38 Super last year but I did replace the rubber wrap around grips on my 2015 GCT with some wood stocks from Altamont.



    A little off thread but I did not like the look of the blue grips that came on a S&W Perf Center 1911 I bought but they feel great when I shoot it so I have left them on it so far.

    Wood or Ivory and steel. That's all.

    I was going to post something similar, although it was concerning the G10 grips on my recently-acquired Combat Commander.

    While I do like the laminate grips, I'm a bit turned off by the design (gigantic Colt logo in the middle)… I know it's a Colt, I can read the rollmarks on the slide!

    I prefer the old school look of double diamonds... I could replace the grips with rosewood, but I might just get a new set of VZ grips without the ostentatious logo. I haven't yet decided.

    As to the different colors (red, blue, green, etc.); I'm not too crazy about those, either. I prefer something that looks like wood.
