Looking to personalize a bit but still be useful by adding some custom stocks.  Anyone care to show theirs off?     Thanks

As always beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I love the Hogue panel grips (no finger grooves) for the 92.
Before I even thought of owning a 92/M9 I always thought they looked sexy and after installing mine they are very functional as well.

Do you feel that those Hogue's give a firmer grip that the factory grips ?

Yes.  

Besides the obvious material difference between stock plastic grips the Hogue feels flatter and less bulky in my hand. I'm sure the wraparound Hogue grips would give an even firmer grip but I dislike finger grooves on my handguns.

AFAIK they only come in black. The finger groove model comes in desert tan, OD green, and pink.

I have the normal Hogue with finger groves.  Very comfortable and grippy.  New pic after removing the last of the paint from the screws.  Two-tone

What is a good method to have the black paint removed where the tip of the slotted screwdriver fits?



As you can see I sanded down my screws so they aren't black anymore....but I can't get rid of the black in the screwdriver slots.

I have NP3 coated screws on mine, but some paint remover or some acetone and a brush should work.

I will try the paint remover.



I thought they were anodized, though.

Any black screws I had weren't anodized and the black came off pretty easily from just handling. They also rusted easily which is why I prefer them to be NP3 coated.

Paint remover worked well, and I used a small diameter bore brush to scrub the slots.






Thanks for the idea!




And yes, my screws were a bit rusted which is why I decided to sand them down.

Glad it worked. I've seen stainless screw sets as well as NP3 coated screw sets on sights like CDNN and the like if the rust issue persists.

There was a guy on the Beretta forum making them, plus other custom grips. I'm not sure if he's still making them, but I'd do a search over there. Sorry, I don't remember the guys name but if you post asking who made the custom RE grips, I'm sure someone will chime in. Those grips are actually the most comfortable grips I've tried on the 92 series and I've tried quite a few.

ETA: Did a little searching and it looks like he has his own website now: http://www.dsgrips.com/Samurai-Edge.html

I no longer have this M9A1, and have 5 92Fs models instead (pic below). But, I am using this photo as a close up of the grips I have on all 5. Someone at the Beretta Forum will drill the hogue grips and install a medallion.

Wow. Nice collection!
I'm not big on medallions but it looks great on hogue grips.

while I no longer have the pistol, when I did, I had the Hogue G10 grips and stainless screws on it. I prefer them grippy. My Sig also has Hogue G10 grips.

I don't know. I inherited it from my father and that set of grips was on it as long as I could remember.

You're the second person to think it was a compact. It's a full size 92FS. My pictures must be at an odd angle.

Word!  I think the grips make it look smaller for some reason.

It's also probably because the grips have a front and back strap that REALLY beef it up

My 92A1...love this gun, the Hogue wrap around grips seem like they would make a big grip even bigger but it makes it much easier to hold.  I added the Surefire X400 and 20 round Promag because I use this as one of my primary home defense guns.

So much pink! Its like looking into the sun.

I'll have to try a pair of wrap-around grips eventually (in BLACK!) just to compare them to the normal Hogue panels.

Some updated pictures with new Hogue black screws for my Centurion and a new Hogue grip for my 92A1.












The Hogue screws are more glossy than the factory 92A1 screws which are more matte.  Although my Centurion's screws seemed to be more glossy when I got it.  Maybe the Beretta screws become glossy and "polished" with continual use.




























I think the Hogue grips are such an improvement upon the factory grips.  There is no chance of the gun slipping out of your hand and they fit my hands perfectly.  I had almost forgot how the original grips felt until I recently got the 92A1, since I had replaced the original grips on my Centurion years ago.







I bought my original Beretta 92 Hogue grip for around $20 or $25 from a LGS, but recently found a "damaged package" Hogue grip on Amazon for $15.  Nothing wrong with the grips themselves.  The Hogue grip screws were $10 from Amazon but seem to be priced the same on eBay.







I also put a Hogue grip on my AR.  I bought some Magpul grips when they were on sale for future AR rifle builds just to see how they feel, and that they were half the price of the Hogue grips.  ($10 vs $20)

My personal favorite is the Hogue Wrap-around with hex stainless screws on my 92FS INOX.  Sorry don't have a pic handy.  Grip is so damn comfy and the hex screws really set it off visually- will try to post a pic soon.
