Altamont Grips have a very good reputation for their grips. I know of no one that has purchased grips from them for a Luger.

Check the left grip in the pics on their site. the upper left is not pointy enough. The relief for the safety lever shaft is crude. I have seen pics of their grips that have a weird, very broad chamfer around the grip screw area. I bought a broken set on eBay to play with that had this chamfer, and they also had a weird cross section--instead of a plateau with rounded edges, it was a single hump, which was too high in the center and feathered the edges too much. It was one of their cast grips. They seem perhaps a bit brittle, as well. Wood ones would be better, for sure.

Default P08 Luger "Walnut" chequered Grips - Deustche Manufactured

I was reading your recent article with interest. Unfortunately in this day and age you get precisely what you pay for, no more, but quite often less.

We are supplied by a German manufacturer not Nill Griffe, but an independent who manufacture Top quality walnut Luger P08
fitting grips finely chequered and the nearest possibly you will ever find comparing with an original pair today.

http://cmrfirearms.com/product_info.php?products_id=193

Before launching our business back in 1987 we carried out some in depth market research. What we found was that collectors wanted quality - but frequently did not want to pay for it. For example Sarco supply Indian made Luger grips which many Luger Gun owners are content with to dress up a pistol re-incarnated from possibly a supply of mismatched spare parts etc.

For every 100 pair of grips Sarco sell - the quality grips will only sell 20 - the answer is easily worked out by oneself.

So may I suggest to any collectors seriously setting out to replace or dress up there investment Luger. To please fit it with a pair of grips that will look like the part that were originally made for this wonderful pistol.

Thank you for reading our post.

Did anyone find a set of smooth P08 grips??? I checked Nills site; they don't list them.

I'd like to get a set for my long barreled Luger.

There seems to be so many grip options out there. I am glad my oem grips are in great shape, but exploring these stylish options is fun. Thanks for all the links to grips and accessories.
