    Has anyone tried the VZ Operator grips?
    Looking at giving these a try, picking up a set of slim VZ Operators in Black Desert Sand.

    Nice. Bet those would give a heck of a purchase.

    I like VZ grips quite a bit.

    Wood grips are always my favorite though. :)

    I'm thinking about one of these for my new KC, obviously converted to bobtail:

    I've owned VZ Aliens and VZ ETCs. Great grips IMO.

    I was leaning that way too for the KC. Maybe the bottom for my new - oops, getting ahead of myself. ;)

    I have the normal VZ G10 desert sand on my Wilson CQB in .40 ... love em.

    The rest of my 1911s have VZ operators of some variant. Even have a few golfballed pairs.

  10. I have a pair of VZ Operator II's that are awesome. The fit and finish is great and they are definitely grippy. I liked them so much that I ordered some VZ Gators and some VZ Aliens to try out.

    VZ G10s are what come OEM on the SA TRP right? I'm a fan of those so I'd feel pretty confident in trying a pair of operators
     
  12. I think the stock grips on the TRP are Mil Tac's. But ther VZ Operators have a similar feel.

    Those are great grips. They were nice on my CBOB. I just actually prefer the VZ G10 double diamonds better.

    i have 3 pair,
    your 1911 WILL NOT slip out of your hands.
    I really like them, good people to do business with and would recommend them.

    Also, you might want to invest in the little rubber 0 rings/screw rings they sell, they will keep the grips in place.
