I have an 8 week old Ruger SR1911 10mm that I really like.

Not that there's anything at all wrong with the stock grips but I've seen a number of pictures of G10 grips and as I like blue, ordered a set of blue/black from guuun grips on EBay. Got them a few minutes ago and installed them.

I really think they are very handsome and are set off by the beadblasted stainless of the Ruger. They fit very well.

Edited to add that I just noticed that there is an unobtrusive cut in the mag catch side that makes it noticeably easier to access the mag catch w/o having to adjust your grip. Good design.

Sorry I'm a neanderthal regarding posting pictures on the internet.

Can't say I'm impressed at all with FleaBay. Order took 18 days and trying to get updates from them was next to impossible. Another recent order was for hearing aid batteries and we received a bunch that were going to be beyond their "use by" date within a month. I've had it with Fleabay.

The grips were $26, only 3 or 4$ less than Amazon. For the difference, I'd have bought from Amazon had I known they were carrying them. Don

A tip with batteries, don't buy from sellers that don't include the expiration date. The closer to the expiration date they are, usually the cost of the batteries will be a bit cheaper.

Those grips look real nice on that stainless pistol. How's that 10mm Ruger shoot?

When you said blue grips, I thought YUCK. But seeing them I was wrong. They look very nice.

The gun shows no flaws appearance wise and it is very tightly fitted. You cannot create rattles by shaking it or messing with the slide. Excellent 1911 style trigger.

Shoots very well, recoil is mild even with the hottest Underwood. 252 rds w/o a flaw. Only tried one group from sitting at 25 yds, 2 1/4". I'm having an issue with some double vision called "divergence insufficiency" by the opthamologist. Optometrist appointment delayed by COVID so I'm not a world class shooter by any means and bet the intrinsic accuracy of the gun is better.

Have been reloading for it and I really like the polymer coated 155gr slugs from Missouri Bullets. With the published starting load of Hodgdon's CFE Pistol it runs 100fps faster than the published chronograph data for the 155gr Hornady XTP. Clean, little fouling and very reasonably priced, $57 for 500 counting priority mail shipping.

Edited to add that Underwood's 155gr Hornady XTPs are advertised as 1500fps, this gun got 1493fps/767ft lbs. That pleased me. Don

Those look like the Wilson's signature grips. I wish they made those in brass or tungsten

No, I don't have gigantic hands.

Sock?? Well, people never ask, surprised you did. I have a very rare form of leukemia, T-Cell, Large Granular Lymphocitic chronic leukemia. It damaged the valving in the veins in my left calf. The compression sock keeps blood from pooling in my calf and causing pulmonary embolisms, one of which nearly killed me. Enough info for you? Don
