Changed my grip color

Bersa makes OD green rubber grips for the Thunder but not the CC model. I really liked the look of the OD so I took a chance with some paint and I'm extremely pleased with the results. I didn't have any OD rattle cans so I used Testors acrylic paint and an airbrush kit for model planes. I'm not sure why I didn't think of model paint beforehand but should I get the urge to spray some gun stuff (that doesn't heat up) I'm going to use it.

Two coats and 30 minutes total.

That changes the weapon completely. Nice work, keep posted about how it holds up in and out of a holster. Very well done.

Thank you! I'm pretty curious how it will hold up as well. It gives me another excuse to carry this gun more often :lol:

Looks 'factory'. Will be interested to hear how it holds up. :thumbs2:

That really looks good. :thumbs2:

Will be interested to see how that holds up long term, especially to lube and solvents.

Thanks! It's held up pretty well over the last 3 years. The lighting in the photo makes the color seem faded but it's still a very nice green. Gotta hand it to Testors on this one.

I actually think it’s looks cooler the way it does now. Nothing looks cool until your wear the new off! My favorite AR I rattle canned a year ago and it’s wearing in nicely. Heck when it all wears off I’ll rattle her again!

Thank you, I agree. I've got my AR done up in OD as well and now that it's finally worn in it looks great. Well loved.
