Cheap, aggressive grips. https://www.ergogrips.net/shop/ergo-xt-1911-square-bottom-rigid/
and the best part is that they’re made in the great State of New Mexico.
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.
VZ grips... they are awesome!
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.
The Factory grips on SA's TRP Operator are SUPER aggressive, I LOVE them!
Another +1 for VZ Grips
handgun grip right ?
i have a handgun grip on frotknox brand , its cool
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.
Another plug for VZ grips, these are Operator II, or III, I can't remember.
The grips aren't that important, because that's not where you should really be gripping anyhow. The place you need grip is the front strap and the back strap. On my Ruger 22/45 I stippled it just like a Glock. My Range Officer I had stippled by Logan Clark between matches at Camp perry in 2018. It's like a cheese grater and will cut you, but it grips great.
VZ Grips, you can get them with or without the cutout.
I have Cool Hand Sunburst G10 grips on a Government Model and a CCO. Really nice grips and in my opinion you can’t beat them for the price.
I'd tell you what brand my 65 year old 5-2 wife likes on her 1911's but its far less than "aggressive " . Only a single sides 45* cut on thing G10's that are like stock checkering but only half of the cut and very light texture and mine are smooth grips as I too have a checked front strap to go with the rear checking and some thing aggressive is just not needed .
So search and find what YOU want to try as theres only 5 or 6 large producers of grips and another 20 or 30 smaller guys and gals making grips to pick from .
Lokgrips bogies pretty aggressive so are the ridge backs. I got a set of ridge backs on my s2 it actually leaves pressure marks on my hand.
Just ordered a pair, need to replace the faux ivory that cracked on my carry springer loaded, these are at the right price!
