    Ok - I changed the grips from Pachmeyer wrap arounds to these :)

    No, no more online grief for having the Pachmeyers :)

    Pachmayr wraparound grips are the devil's work.

    Well for what it's worth, I really like Pachy's. I actually think they look good. Regardless of how they look, they are the best feeling grip for me. I'm thinking of picking up a TRP and will put some on it, even though it has grip checkering. I know.....the horror.....the horror.

    Yeah, but they saved more than one hand with their steel inserts.

    Well, they are my fav. I will reserve decision on these until the next raneg trip. I did try them over a year ago, but went back to the pachmeyers afterwards. I bought another set today to try again...


    The gun came with wooden grips, and I sorta liked them. But that color wood doesn't look right on the silver colored finish

    What a let-down.

    We were the only two guys here with Springfield Custom rollmarks and Pachmayrs.

    Real 1911s wear ugly rubber grips.

    Those are just plain Hogue panels...

    The Hogues are thinner than the Pachmeyers... Im still getting used to it. The grip is almost TOO thin for me now :)

    But, I'll take it to the range and shoot them with the new ones once and then decide...

    I did pay extra for the 25 LPI hand checkering :) - nice to see it
