    Light and gritty are two entirely different things.
    To exaggerate by way of illustration, it feels like it has sand in the action. This is usually caused by rough sears, rough edges of moving...

    I've got four of those in Super Rosewood. Color tends to vary somewhat from grip to grip.
    You'll need to do some bedding for perfect fit (I use JB Weld).
    They feel great in the hand.

    I tend to wear inexpensive George brand khaki pants from Walmart because of their relatively large pockets. The Altamont combat grips conceal OK and are very comfortable in the hand.
