Mil Spec Question

Are the designated Mil Spec 1911's grips thicker than standard 1911 grips?

I have been told that when a manufacturer claims Mil Spec that also means much thicker grips than what is commonly put on the companies other 1911's.

the grips are standard size, no worries

.......however there is nothing 'mil spec' about the Springfield Mil Spec 1911, it is just a marketing ploy

Standard 1911 grips are right at 1/4" thick.
Slim grips are normally right at 3/16" thick.

A few manufacturers have thicker than normal grips, RIA is one

RIA grips are definitely thicker than most. I believe they're over a quarter inch.
