The front strap of the Prime Elite is adorned with carry comfort checkering. Designed by Master Gunsmith R. Schauland, this unique checkering eliminates uncomfortable sharp edges with purposely smooth transitions along the side of the front strap. Yet, the center core area engages your fingers for exceptionally effective grip. This design results in no sacrifice of shooting grip and stability with no discomfort from sharp edges on your hand or on your body when carrying inside the waistband.

Note: Grips shown in the photos are not standard.
