I would like to put a nice pair of Cocobolla Grips on my para. Is there anybody out there making grips that will fit the gun without enlarging the grip more than it already is? Experience?

I wish.. I have a P14 and have searched the web for grips, but have never seen any cocobolo or any other wood for a P14. That would be a very thin slice of wood and I wonder if it would be durable. I have a C745 with thin grips and I have to be careful not to overtighten the grip screws, or ruin the screw holes.

I, too, have been searching for Para grips for my P13.

Hogue makes Para grips in all their exotic woods but I think Hogues are horribly overpriced.

Eagle grips makes rosewood grips for Para's.

S&A does too.

Scott Sensing makes them for single stack Para's and I am sending him some P13 grips to see if he can make double stack grips.

A respected Para gunsmith told me that wood grips on a double stack are either so thick they make the grip feel like a hand grenade or so thin that they don't last. That said, he is going to try Bocote wood grips on a Para.

I don't know personally but am willing to try.
