Badger Grip Oil vs. High Gloss: What’s the Difference?

All Badger grips now come with the option of an oil finish or a high gloss finish.


Badger Grip Oil grips are simply treated by rubbing in a thin layer of
our unique oil before shipping them out to you (purchase the oil by
clicking here). You will need to apply oil to your grip regularly upon
receipt of the grip. If your grip is ever scratched, you can lightly
sand away the imperfection then apply a couple new coats of oil and
you’ll be good to go! This finish is great for EDC and those who want to
tailor the feel of their finish to their own tastes. Please note that
regular applications of the oil may darken the grip, giving that classic
patina we all recognize in a well used revolver grip.

High
gloss finishes vary based on the material selected. If you selected
Dymalux with High Gloss, your grip will simply be buffed to the high
gloss finish. If you select High gloss on a SpectraPly have a
sprayed-on, glossy topcoat that is very durable. This is a low
maintenance option that simply needs to be wiped off after use. If your
grip is ever scratched, you can send it back to us through our
Refurbishing Service to have the grip refinished.
