    Is there some advantage of the Cocobolo over something like G10? Other than looks.

    I like wood on an aluminum frame because it takes a lot less torque to hold them on and they donít scratch the frame like G10 will. I have G10 on a couple of steel frames with Challis bushings and O rings but they still donít stay on as good as wood.

    I really donít want to spin a bushing on an aluminum frame.

    Are you happy with the grippiness of wood stock panels? I found the ones on my SW191PD to be too slippery during heavy rain.

    The wood stock panels on my Colt (I got them from Nutmeg for $40) are grippier than the Black VZ checkered double diamond G10 grips I have.

    I love the full checkered medallion stocks on Colts. I find they give sufficient purchase on the grip.

    Nice!

    Like I said, I found the stock panels on my Smith & Wesson too slick. I thought they were just fine until one day when I was out shooting in heavy rain. After that, they had to go.

    I went with VZ panels myself. They're not nearly as pretty as the original wooden ones, but the amount of grip is outstanding. The grip screws do keep backing out very quickly though, which is annoying.

    Nice pistol. The little rubber O-rings you can get work great for keeping the grip screws tight. VZ sells them, as do others. You can probably find some at a home improvement/hardware store.

    Iíve found the walnut colt medallion grips to be very grippy as well.

    Iíve tried rosewood and i think cocobolo and they just didnít have the same bite walnut stocks do
