Sounds like you have grips that are worth more than the gun they’re on, congrats. I went through MP AIT in Alabama in the mid 1970’s, luckily it was January through March, wonderful weather.The grips feel like small sand against my teeth. Just an fyi....there are some things that drive me insane. Rubbing something against my teeth is one of them. Touching cardboard with my fingertips is another. And the worst is a wet collar in a button down shirt.
And my superiors in the Army did not care about how I felt about this when we stood in formation for hours in the summer while the Alabama sun was beaming down on us. It’s pretty funny now but it was torture twenty years ago.
Thanks all for your comments. I bought this without a worry if the grips are MOP or not. I knew I was buying it as soon as I saw how it was built and how durable it is.
