Thin grips

Looking for as thin as possible grips for my PCR.  Thinner than stock rubber

Any suggestions?

Aluminum or G10 material like VZ'S or LOK's.

I also love my VZ. Lok and pachmayr are two other similar brands that cost less, but I can't speak to them personally.

After you choose a brand, you'll need to choose a style: diamondback, frag, diamond, golf ball etc (those are vz names, not sure if they are the same across brands.) They have recommendations on style based on what your intended use is if you check out their website. For what it's worth, I chose Frag and have no complaints.

I've got VZ grips on several of mine purchased from CGW when they stocked them at a reasonable price.

Now I think the best deal going for the G10 style grips is Cool Hand.   I just picked up a set of the Coyote for two guns, and really like them.  They're currently running a "buy two get 10% off" deal on Amazon, and they have models that include the grip screws, for ~ $45 each that's a much better deal than the VZ's at $75/ea

On Amazon for the CZ 75 Compact size: http://amzn.to/2tcatM8

They've also got a decent store on eBay.

I have smallish hands and love the coolhand but I bought the ones that dont wrap at top but are cut away exposing the frame more so I could really get my hand into the beavertail. They make my guns an absolute pleasure to shoot!!

Both sets are aggressive and thin but the ones on the tristar are really aggresive.

or make your own. I have! love it!  easy to do if you have access to any general tool/die guy, machinist..  make a simple step block w/ tapped hole to hold grip. then simply mill down.  my purchased thin grips from CZ/Ghost shop,  are only .015 above frame. I cover w/ step/skateboard tape.  or even just keep polished for smooth grip side panels and utilize the serrations on backstrap or frontstrap more!  lots of options.

I have the snake scale by Cool Hand and love them. I have short fingers and these let me reach the trigger just right.

Screw on the bottom handgun grip looks rusted, ya may want to replace that.  Just sayin.  Nice grips though.  Im not one for color, so I prefer the LOK grenade grips in black.

Yeah it is.  The pictured 75D is my EDC these days and the screw on the carry side (I'm right handed, the side shown is closest to my body) has picked up some surface rust this summer.  Definitely need to fix it.   :)
