A variant of the Gator Back. You may have seen this texture on the front page of gun magazines or as OEM on production guns from some of the best in the industry. They were originally designed for the Precision Weapons Section of the U.S. Marine Corps. These grips provide a lot of grip with just the right amount of bite.
G-10 (jEE tEn) Is a high-pressure fiberglass laminate created by stacking multiple glass cloth layers. Kind of like a boat hull. This is done by soaking the glass in epoxy resin. Then by heat and pressure, it is compressed into the shape you are looking for; primarily sheets and rods. As with most fiberglass, this stacking provides amazing strength and durability.
G-10 displays amazing properties and offers a lifetime of use without maintenance. The insulating properties, strength, fire and electrical insulation and moisture resistances makes this a perfect material for the manufacturing of grips in the firearms industry.
G-10 will not rust or oxidize. It won't become brittle or soften over time. This means it is basically maintenance free. Unlike other materials such as bone, wood or horn or some metals used by other grip makers, G-10 will stand up to the test of time. Since G10 is a great insulator it lends itself to be an excellent heat barrier between your hands and a hot pistol or rifle
