I have a Combat as well and I describe it as a cross between bronze and copper. Definitely a greenish tint to it. I've kept the stock grips on mine. I like E2's and Hogues better, but not enough to change the stock ones out. I really wish they made E2's in the color of the stock grips.I thought about the green ones. The gold in the frame is an "old gold" that almost has a green hue in certain light. I was hoping that someone has been the Guinea Pig already and has pictures.
