I've got a new in-package Hogue in Black.
I bought it to compare with the G27 and the G27 won the contest. The Hogue has been installed for a total of 6 minutes or so. Never fired, never sweated on, etc. It was just given the squeeze a few times.
I wouldn't mind trading for a used sling or some sort other than USGI or I'd be happy to take $15 and ship for free.
Let me know.
