SP01 slim grip help
« on: December 20, 2017, 12:29:18 PM »
I just picked up my second CZ a SP01 and I have a grip question.  I have small hands so I am looking for something thinner than the stock rubber grips.  My problem is that the slim grips I look up leave that ugly notch uncovered at the top rear.  What are my options for thin grips that cover the back upper grip frame.

What grips are you looking at?

Most around here either go with VZ or LOK grips if you like the g-10 material or aluminum grips from CZ or CGW.

the VZ's look like they may work.  Both the slim LOK grips and the CZ aluminum leave the weird opening at the back of the frame.  Are the VZ's slim enough to make a noticeable difference in trigger reach.

What weird opening?

If you want the thinnest grips that completely cover the notch, either LOK or VZ grips (the non-palm swell versions) are the thinnest at about 1.20" wide. The Hogue G-10 grips are about 1.25" wide.

If you are OK with grips that only cover the sharp point of the notch (see arrow in above picture), then you get LOK grips in the "Shadow 2" style (which are about 1.18" wide). Per LOK Grips: "Just purchase the grips you want on our website and leave a message at checkout saying they are for a Shadow 2".

thank you, and yes the picture is exactly what I was talking about.  I think the slim grips make the gun look incomplete.  I will check out the Shadow II grips from LOK

You're very welcome. Just keep in mind that the LOK Shadow 2 grips will still leave a gap above the sharp "point".  It just won't be as big as the gap left by the typical thin grips. But it should prevent the sharp point from "biting" your hand.

Although there is still the "ledge" at the back, my LOK grips are flush and don't have that protrusion.

Do you have the standard LOK grips or the thin LOK grips? It is the thin grips that leave the ledge/gap/sharp point exposed:

If you like wood, I can make them pretty thin also.

I agree with the O.P. that the exposed sharp point takes away the smooth look of the pistol.
