I would like to have the half checkered, but if a uncheckered looks better the Checkering on the MSH and Front strap is very nice.

ETA: I would just like a nice set of wood grips doesn't matter checkered or not. Just need guidance on which type of wood.

With a 2 toned pistol like yours, my personal preference would be something to compliment the look of the gun. Something like Lazza's Monkey Grips, or maybe something from Carbon Creations comes to mind.

There's another .02 for ya...:biggrin:

Edit: I thought of another... Wicked Grips

You really cant beat Ahrends grips...those are gorgeous indeed...but you know
the grips I got on my Baer and my Kimber are almost as pretty and have nice figure
like the ones above. Esmerelda makes nice grips...but have heard some complain that
the wood or finish is soft on them...my BobTailed Talon came with fantastic grips...
if you don;'t like what they sent...I am certain they have others...

The stocks that came on my C4 are really pretty too.

Bocote is a favorite of mine. On that pistol, I'd think a marbled macassar ebony would look stunning.
