Yeah I was about to ask the same question. I have a Bruni Beretta M92, the original flat surface grips don't feel good in my hand. I was thinking of getting the original Beretta grips but not sure if the screw size is the same or will it fit properly or not.

Any info on this will be nice.

Sorry to hijack..

I've tried real plastic factory Beretta grips and aftermarket rubber grips on the Voltran Beretta M92s. The plastic grips, I had to cut down a bit of a ridge on the inside to make it lie flush, and then I still sometimes have a problem with the mag release getting depressed by the grips. Close though. The rubber grips seem to work, but again there's a bit of an issue with the mag release depending on how tight the grip screws are.

Tried Colt Python wood grips for a Bruni version too- those don't fit as is, and I haven't had the time to fiddle with them yet.

Only Umarex I've got is the Walther P99, so grips are a moot point. Wait, that's not true- I've got the Chief's special as well, but I like the wood grips those came with.

How'd it go? By the way, where did you find an Umarex Makarov? Only models of theirs I've seen for sale in the US are the S&W and Ruger Redhawk revolvers, the Walther P99s and P22s, and the Colt and S&W 1911s.

Also, I have a Bruni Peacemaker I need to put some replacement grips on. Could just make 'em from scratch, but has anyone tried any replacement grips on them?
