    If you want cheap, comfortable grips that are effective for maintaining control of the gun and controlling recoil, Hoag wrap-around rubber grips are great for this purpose.

    All the flat, side-panel grips are just minor variations on the same thing.

    Brownell’s has a set of checkered black plastic grips for the 1911 that are pretty aggressively checkered. Eight bucks! A little skateboard tape on the front strap, and that’s about as good a grip as you’ll find.

    But not cheap. The OP asked for a cheap alternative.

    Dude I owe you a beer or two...I got two sets, one for my Ruger 22/45 and one for my 1911... Got them ASAP and they are excellent.

    I got the same Starburst for the Ruger and I agree with your comments. I got the golf ball texture for my 1911 and I am also impressed...

    The seller does very good quality and I highly recommend.

    I like VZ grips. I have a pair of G10s and a pair of Rosewood grips made by them. I like the Rosewoods better on carry guns because the checkering is more aggressive than on my stock Colt grips, but not as abrasive as the G10s. I think the G10s are what you want if this is a range/home defense gun where it isn't rubbing against your belly.

    My favorite are the Simonich Gunner, VZ does them now. As aggressive as anything I've found without being painful (though my hands are pretty tough and very, VERY few things are painful to my hands). I also put skateboard tape on my front strap if it's smooth, which helps as much or more than the grip panels.
