Looking for a bit of help. If you have a set of printed grips from PrecisionTargetPistolGrips.com, could you please let me know how they are holding up in service. My High Standard Supermatic is a candidate for an upgrade and the pricing VS Rinks has me intrigued. Thanks Scott

The team I help coach has several at this point, with a 2nd Tau-7 grip on order. The grip with the most use is an XXS for a Pardini PGP-75. It was put into service around the beginning of the year, and went to the Collegiate National Championships last March. We have another gal shooting it this year, and it's holding up just fine. We just put a second PGP-75 grip into service.

I've worked with Andrew Berryhill at PTPG on getting the frame fit right for several types of pistols, and I've never had any concerns about how sturdy they are. We actually have several wooden grips (Rinks, Nil Griffe, etc.) that have developed cracks where students have "gorilla'd" the mounting & palm shelf screws. We've even replaced a couple Benelli MP90S palm shelves with 3D printed ones of our own making. I would rate the 3D grips from PTPG as generally being more indestructible than wood.

Hands are oddly shaped squishy things, so getting a perfect fit may still take a little sanding, filing & puttying. If anything is really out of whack, Andrew will make it right.

Andrew Berryhill is a good guy to work with. If you're not mechanically inclined, he can still explain things in a way that is understandable, and will work to make sure you get the grip you need (he can even send you pictures and parts he needs measurements from by using auto CAD). We worked on my steyr evo 10 for a few weeks, and the resulting grip is absolutely fantastic. Well worth the money spent.

I had a set for a .38 revolver, they failed pretty quickly within a 100 rounds. Andy offered to replace them no questions asked; his service is outstanding, but I did not take him up on his offer. I’d be comfortable with them on a .22 or AP but my experience with light target loads in a heavy revolver would not leave me with a warm and fuzzy feeling concerning heavier calibers and 3D Grips.

I received my new grips from Andrew today. I had him make a set for my Unique DES-69 .22lr target pistol. Just to be different, I had them done in red, white, and blue.

To get the shape and size I wanted, I sent him the grips from my Hammerli 208S. He duplicated their size and feel to the Unique frame almost perfectly. It will take very little to have them nicely functional, just a little relief around the safety cut out.

My photos seem to be too big for this format. If you would like to see them, send a PM with your email address.

I recommend his grips without reservation. He will work with you until you achieve the desired result.

Ric
