Looking for some decent slim grips that do not cost and arm and a leg.
What is your budget? Do you prefer wood or G10?
Right around $50, maybe a little more. Looking at all material, wood, G10, etc.
I haven't used the slims but I do like the regulars here. http://www.alumagrips.com/
Do you need ambi safety cut?
Navidrex makes some nice grips in Micarta.
Given a choice, I'd prefer those made in G-10 by VZ...but they do cost more.
You can forget VZ grips ($$$$)... ok, they are quality grips but they are not made out of Gold and I am not paying a arm and a leg just for "handling" charges, they can keep em.
Navidrex thin grips are awesome ($)
So are Chip McCormick thin grips ($$)
$65 for a set of grips.
$8 for postage
Where the heJJ does this arm & a leg handling crap come into play?
State the facts, get them correct and drop the BS! Care to explain?
Looks like the quote of fireforged did not post.......added it.
Make sense now?
BIG fan of slim Alumagrips.
X2!!! I have Alumagrips on all my 1911s!!!
I love slim grips!
can the slim grips have ambi-cut like the OP needs?
VZ grips can,.......not sure about Alumagrips
I like them as well.
Well, I rechecked and it appears that USPS priority is indeed less that $8.00 but I made my original comment based on their price listed for UPS ground which was $17 with a nice little note about handling charges. I always UPS (out of habbit) which in this case was not the smart choice.
Since the $8.00 option exists, I will of course retract my opinion on (arm and a leg) and reserve that comment specifically for their handling charge associated with UPS ground.
Did not know they charged tht for UPS,....my apologies.
Have bought around ten pair from VZ over the years. Always use USPS
