Very nice grips. 45 angle grips. Fit like a glove. Way better than the Pardini factory grips.

They Are definitely prettier.  My personal experience with fitment, compared to Rink, differed from yours though.  Probably why there so many different grip makers.

I bought a used pair here on the forum and the grips are awesome.  I did take down that palm shelf a bit as it was rubbing in all the wrong places

I've been a disciple of Thomas Rink for the past year or more and, after two or three false starts, homed in on the ideal fit for me. The Pardini and Hammerli grips I have from Rink are great, I love the perfect finish and tactile feel of the stippled areas. 

Unfortunately, Rink could not duplicate my preferred fit in grips for my MG2. I then decided to try Dick Horton and ordered a set of "upright" grips for my MG2. They arrived a few weeks after my order. They were absolutely beautiful in blonde curly maple. But, unfortunately, did not fit me quite right and no way did I want to take a rasp and putty to such works of art. I communicated with Dick and then sent to him a spare set of Rink grips which fit me perfectly. He immediately advised that he intended to make a completely new set of grips tailored to my updated information, but is waiting for "exhibition" wood from his supplier. I am more than willing to wait.

Whilst I do not yet have the perfect grips from Dick, he has inspired my confidence and I fully expect to get to perfection in the near future. This is how the first set looked:-

Match Gun MG2

Posted by Mr. Horton I think? And I'm guessing that those might be my new grips he just mailed out this morning. Yay!
