I have been looking for some pearl type grips for my PPK/S (S&W). I have learned that true "Mother of Pearl" look the best, but are not recomended for actual shooting. I bought some plastic (Pearl design) at a gun show in Minnesota 12/10. I installed them on the gun a went to the range 12/11. After about 2 -3 boxes of ammo, I noted that the right grip had cracked a piece off. I called the supplier (J&R Sales) in Cottage Grove Minnesota, and He said too bad, so Sad, After some talking he agreed to have a look at them if I mailed them to him. I paid $45 for the grips, and was also looking at some on the internet. the price range is from $60 -$125 for a set. So now the Question. Am I Expecting too much to have somthing that is functional AND look good? Somebody with more Expierence please guide me down the right path.
Thanks

Pearl grips, functional and good looking
?

Sorry, couldn't resist, I never liked pearl grips. Hopefully someone here knows a good quality maker of pearl grips.

I have the Pearlite made by Ajax on my Colt Mustang and hasn't been a problem. I don't know if their doing for S&W PPK/S yet or not. I have their Bufflo Horn $80 on my Interarms PPK/S I have a set of fake ? ivory unknown maker. They have yellowed real nice and have a small chip out where cut for safety. These were on pistol when I bought years ago. Before anybody says something We have done the hot needle test several times and nobody can say one way or other. Their is no melting and they have a smell when you put needle to them Iam leaning to real. also have a grain to them.

Follow up. Pearl Grips. I received a new set of "AJAX CUSTOM GRIPS" from J&R Sales, Brand new in the box. Seems they decided to follow up and make good on a defective product. I don't know if the original's were AJAX brand or not, but the replacements were. I checked the fit to the PPK/S and the rear bottom corner on both sides would catch on clothing or sharp objects, so I am staying with the original Grips. Maybe in the future, Crimson Laser will add the LG-380 laser grips back to their line, And I'll get my Christmas wish. Thanks once again for a place to express my Dissapoinments (and get results). Seems the right people read this stuff and understand good marketing.
Thanks!
