Nill Grips for Walther Pistols

mac tec has Nills for the P5c (as well as many other guns).

I got a set for one of mine, but the fit was not right and I had to send them back, just my experience.

Thanks for the tip. And if anyone has any they're not using...

For as beautiful as they are, Nill grips do not fit my hand as I like. They all have a palm swell that make the grips fatter and change the grip feel drastically to me. I have sold or traded every pair I ever had from a Springfield 1911, Walther P88, P5, SIG-Sauer P220, etc.

None of them feel as good as the original plastic or factory wood grips.

There's no question that grips are an individual thing: What works for you may not work for me, and vice versa. It's always best to experiment until you find one that you like best. It's also worth noting, again, that some grips are for show and others are for actual field/range work. It doesn't hurt to have some options at hand, ready to go.

It's nice to see the P5 section active, by the way. I still maintain that it's Walther's crowning achievement in pistols.

Well, As I said, I am not happy with mine, other than the way they look.

Beyond the poor fit problems, they also have too much girth. I do not have large hands and just didn't like the way they changed the feel of my P5.

I guess there is just no place for a BBQ gun in my life.

They seem a bit hit or miss on fit, but usually some minimal 'adjustment' will make them work. Quality seems fine for a relatively 'budget' wood grip.

I like them well enough:



They fit my hand, and the pistol, like OJ's glove.

What about these wood grips?
Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/221678253090

They look nice, and not too expensive. Anyone have these?
