Who mkaes the BEST 1911 grips?

Okay, don't butcher me but, I am gassing for a set of Ivory or Silver punisher grips otherwise, I am up in the air about what I would like...

I DO know I want to put the pierce wrap around finger grips on it as I have small hands and that helped me control my 1911 a ton (kimber pro carry II)

Any thoughts, recommendations for a "Back in the badlands" 1911 carry piece?

if they are good enough for the good ol' usmc, they are good for me (mc operator with pachmayr grips). they are comfortable grips and are supposed to work well in all weather conditions and not be slippery when wet:

Not sure they're what you're lookin' for, but I'm a big fan of Esmeralda's grips.

What is your definition of "best"?

It's like asking who makes the "best" toilet paper. My best might be your worst.

"Best?"

Best for what, and for whom?

My favorite is natural horn of unicorn engraved with the profile of John Browning's third wife.

IMO in the 20yrs of carrying a 1911
Esmeralda or Alumagrips for carry
Gunner grips for hard core training

Oh no look at that post number
