I personally like the CZ rubber on my S-120. My friends were liking the hogue better though. Earnshaw, If you would like to try the houge, PM me your address, you can have them. I got my CZ rubber compacts on the forum here like new for $15 shipped. I got my CZ rubber full size from Matt Mink at Automatic Accuracy for $15 shipped (new, pull offs).

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.

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.

No problem. Anytime. Interesting to hear your minor fitting for grips. I was very surprised when I shined the flashlight in the C-100 screw holes and it was already perfect.

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

That is funny how it differed.

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!
