Does anyone like this?

To me its even more lame than Springfield !GRIPZONE!

It would be one thing if the frame was carbon fiber and it provide some sort of benefit... but that is not the case.

Ugly as sin

Is this the direction manufacturers think will lead to more sales? The GripZone and this CF crap seems directed at people new to firearms that walk into a store and buy what looks cool. With youtube reviews, blogs, review websites and print most everyone does their ground work before making a purchase.

I can't believe they put all the effort into designing these and didn't make them in a pattern that is known to sell well with firearms enthusiasts.

Guns are icky, that is disgusting

Jesus christ that is fucking heinous.

Someone give me some acid to pour in my eyes

I never got this "look". Years ago, I first saw it on a Walther P22 and thought it was a carbon fibre frame. Cool I looked closer and realized it was just some sort of appliqué Then it just seemed stupid

It isn't even a good fake carbon fiber pattern.
Link Posted: 1/13/2015 4:56:04 PM EST
Nothing about carbon fiber looks cool. Unless you are a 17 year old Fast and Furious fan, that is. Functional, sure...but pretty it ain't.

Nope, two ugly pistols.

Might as well engrave a Ferrari prancing pony on the side.

That is bad, as in no good. It reminds me of when Sig introduced the diamond plate slides. WHY???????????????

That hurts my eyes and makes me sad.

All kidding aside, has anyone come out with an ACTUAL carbon fiber framed pistol?

That is ugly as hell. As an owner of 3 M&P pistols, it really is disappointing to see S&W release something like that.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 11:40:09 AM EST
It puts S&W owners on the level of 'GRIP ZONE'. Its embarrassing. I hope the marketing department doesn't see us all as superficial idiots.

Whats funny though if they had done it in a cerakote digital camo pattern there would be far less complaining. Carbon Fiber is just so tacky.

No thanks...

Hydro-dip is easy, so i guess they figure "why not"

That is Ruger's mentality.

Ugh. I do like carbon fiber and other wovens, but NOT for this application. WTF S&W???

Horrible idea

Smith & Wesson is dead to me.

I've sold 3, people like them for some reason. I personally think it looks like shit. But hey, there's no accounting for taste
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 9:58:54 PM EST
Personally I don't like it.

I like mine (I have two) plane Jane.

I also have a VTAC that I think is sweet, but that's how far I'll ever go with customising patterns & colors.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 10:14:28 PM EST
I HATE the carbon fiber look. Hate it on guns, hate it on knives, hate it on panels, hate it on cell phones.

Can;t STAND it and can't fathom why ANYONE would think it looks cool.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 2:43:50 PM EST
I've never cared for the carbon fiber look
