New Stock Legend Grips
by Bill Mills - Photos by Dawn Mills - Sept 2007

When the Infinity Legend first hit the streets, it was shipped with wraparound grips built to the Colt 1911 style by Hybrid paintball.

This is not surprising, as especially for newer marker manufacturers, the set-up costs of custom-molding products like grips can be prohibitive compared to going with an off the shelf aftermarket accessory.

Since its initial release, the Legend's user base has been growing, and Invinity has now developed their own Legend grips.

paintballThese new grips are panel grips rather than wraparound, and are microinjection molded with a softer feel than the grips previously used by Infinity. Although panel style, they are slightly longer than 1911 style standard grips, and attach to a screw hole on the Legend grip frame slightly higher and forward of that used by the wraparounds.

The grips are available in four color schemes, the one reviewed here was grey. The rubber material making up the grip is overlaid on a metal, rather than plastic frame, giving the grips a substantive feel, and allowing them to hold position if bent.

Placement of the screw holes in the grips was slightly longer (under 1mm) than the screw holes in the grip frame, causing them to bow slightly when installed on a Legend. With a little massagning, they flattened and formed to the frame. The the difference in materials and shape gave the new grips a markedly softer feel when in place.

New Legend Standard Grips are available as an upgrade for existing Legend owners, and as the standard grip on new Legend markers.
