    Polish Grips

    I want to change out the grip on my '67 Polish build

    Would any of these be correct?

    For a 67, you'd want one of the early Polish bakelite grips. They have inverse checkering on the sides, and they are usually much darker in color, almost black with highlights of orange and sometimes green.

    You can tell them apart from an inverse checkered Romy grip by the shape of the pinky nub. A Romy will have a pointed pinky nub as seen from below, and the Polish will be more square.

    Edit: By the way, that build is a beauty. Congrats!

    early style grips that are Dark marbled. Those would be correct , even that those are a little worn.

    Here's some more for color, etc. Pretty sure these were used through 68, maybe into 69
