Coloured grips for the etek 5

Any chance of seeing coloured grips hit the market? Would lv1 grips fit? Looks like the reg grip wouldn't but the grip frame grip might

I would like to see this too, but the grips are not interchangeable

With all the composite parts being black you cant really say the stock grips don't match the marker but I completely understand your desire to personalize your marker and I'm sure Planet Eclipse would give you that option if they deem it financially viable for them.

Hi all,

Currently there are no plans to do coloured grips for the Etek5 I'm afraid.

Thanks

Thanks Tom. I made due by modifying the original grips. I think it really completes the look I was going for

It's exterior caulking for windows and doors. It's flexible so it stretches when removing the front grip and still stays in place. I first tried this with silicone, it worked fine but had a shine I didn't like. Also, the silicone attracted dirt and dust. I'm very happy with the way it turned out.

Question

How much different are the LV1 grips from the Etek5 grips, and in terms of modifying? If PE doesn't have plans to make them... thinking some aftermarket company would... or should...
