    I was testing some Speer gold dots in my Springer GI yesterday, and on the last round, as the slide locked back, I felt something poking me in the hand. I looked at the gun, and realized my grip on the left side had cracked! Not happy, I really liked those grips. :(

    I've got the original wood grips on there now.

    I think the next set of grips I'll be getting are the standard grips from Hogue made from black rubber. I bought the cheap Ajax ones because I wanted something more weather resistant than the wood, and I liked the way they looked.
