I have one gun with VZ grips already. I have the black linen micarta Gatorbacks on a Springfield Operator. I really like them and they are by far,, the best grips I have used on a pistol. I wish the color would stay black instead of gray, but the feel is awesome.

Now, I have a gun being customized by Vandenberg Custom and I'm mulling my grip options. The gun will be parkerized (very dark gray to black) with an S&A Magwell funnel. I'm leaning heavily to a black/red combo, but I can't decide between the Gatorbacks and the linen 320s. I like the look of the 320s better, but I'm not sure I'd like the feel of the grip as well as I do the Gatorbacks. I also haven't ruled out green linen.

Any suggestions or pics of parkerized guns with these grips?

I put the Black Red Paper Micarta on my 1911, very happy with them.
Goes really well with Hard Chrome.

Here are some pics of the green / black 320 & red / black 320. Maybe this will help.

Canvass Gators. Green or red makes little difference. Green looks more military and red looks more like traditional 1911 grips. Gators have better traction than the 320s.
