 Hi Mike.  Question about your holster.  Using  IWB LH G26 Blackhawk but wearing OWB and RH.   Do you think that holster would accommodate a 75B (or 75 Compact) with its square trigger guard?

I am using this holster with my S120.  Though admittedly, it's not an IWB holster.

Hey Bob, I just looked at it again after seeing your question. I think the squared off trigger guard would work just fine. You probably know I'm using it just because that's what I have laying around. I like it fine though. I also don't mind carrying it IWB lefty. After a few hours of that though, I really love the G19 in Kydex.

Wow, those are some nice pics guys!  :D  Mike, which grips do you like best? I have the CZ compact rubber grips on my C-100 and am very happy with them. I've been thinking of putting CZ rubber on my S-120 as well but the pics you and JWC posted of your full size pistols  with the Hogues look darn good too.
 Wish Hogue made those in a side panel only version.

Earnshaw, I currently have original CZ rubber grips on both my C100 and T120.  Love 'em both.  I had the Hogue wrap-arounds on my T120, but the CZ rubber grips are much better.  The pistols both feel so much more "perfect" in my hands with them.

I found both pairs used (but like new) here on the forum in the "for sale" thread.  I'm sure you will find some if you keep looking and have some patience.  I got mine for much lower than new (including shipping).  Both pair were off CZs that has less than a couple hundred rounds use through them.

The grips for the T120 fit no problems.  Pretty much straight on.  The grips for the C100 I had to widen the screw hole just a touch.  Took about 15-20 minutes with a cordless drill and bit.

 Jedman7 thanks much for taking the time to share your thoughts/opinions on my grip question. I certainly do like the CZ  rubber grips on my C-100.

Frank, It's funny I've heard so many different stories. I had just the opposite experience with my Full size / Compact. My compact fit perfectly without mods.

 Thanks for the  very generous offer of the Hogue grips Mike. I'm liking the CZ rubber so much on my C-100 and based on the comments here on the full size I'm going to go with them.
 Been stalking a new but old stock pair that have been on the shelf at an LGS for some time and are on clearance at a very good price.
 Just FYI/FWIW my compacts needed just a tiny bit of screw hole enlargement on my C-100. About a minute with a phillips head screw driver bit , just a couple twists on each grip.
 Thanks to everyone for the comments and opinions.

 Mine were so close the grip screws could almost be pushed through but just not quite.

I recently posted a wanted ad for a set of the "new" Tristar grips. A kind member sent me a set in the mail and would take nothing in return for them. Thank you Usmo for the grips that I wanted.

Are you liking the grips man? They look good on your gun.

I really like them. I have the compact version of these grips on my Tristar C100 and like them too. I've thought for a while that I would love to have them in full size but I didn't know they existed until recently. Thanks for making it happen for me.

Mike, what is your comparison for the Hogue vs factory rubber grip on S-120? Hogue being thinner? I am thinking to change the grip on my S-120 but want some thing thin and start with something at lower cost. I am debating between hogue and factory rubber.

By the way do you still have that Hogue or factory rubber for sale? Thanks.

I can't remember the Hogue being thinner than the stock Tristars but definitely more useful and more comfortable.

The CZ rubber grips may be thinner in places than the stock Tristars, however they are a true "palm swell" grip. The swell is not major though. Again, these are better all around too.

I preferred the oems for no other reason than being correct and plain jane. PM your address and I'll send both sets to you with no worries, only fun!
