Not sure if any of you watch the new Battlestar Galactica, but they use a 5.7 pistol as their main sidearm. They use some others randomly, but the main pistol is a 5.7. Now, in and of itself, that may not be very interesting, but they seem to have replaced/reworked/painted or something, some wood grips over them. Plastic and wood, meh... but it looks pretty cool in the show. Being that it's a one piece, molded grip, any ideas as to how they many have done that? or is it an overlay?

They carry a few P90's on the show as well, but most carry a Berretta Storm for their carbines.

The grips are just painted with krylon brown paint and they used the Tactical model with a 2 piece machined aluminum "grenade launcher" bolted on the rail loaded with a squib for the firing effect.

They are really cool in person!
