K20D battery grip question

OK, so I left it too late to decide to get a battery grip for my K20D, and now they are no longer available. It seems however as I might still be able to get my hands on a 3rd party grip. So, anyone have any experience with the 3rd party offerings? What's the quality like? Any particular brands I should be looking for (or avoiding)?

Alternatively, if anyone out there has a grip they're wanting to part with, then I may well be interested.

Put up a Wanted post in the Marketplace. They're out there and people are parting with them. As to the third party grips, they seem to work well, but you lose the weather sealing.

Skip the 3rd party. Put up a wanted ad, and check the marketplace. Should be able to find one between 80-100...I think that is what I sold mine for late last summer.

Aye, just keep your eyes open and pick up the "Real McCoy" second hand.
