Your Favored Grips

Post by beeser on 1/21/2015, 6:21 pm

After trying a pair of thin grips by RAASCO I decided to go back to standard width grips.  The thin grips left a gap at the palm that didn't make the gun feel secure.  The RAASCO grips also seemed to chafe the base of my palm a little.  The grips that I currently use and find very comfortable are the Hogue rubber slab type grips.  I'm also trying a similar pair of Hogue grips but with the front contoured for your fingers.  Do these conform to Bullseye rules?  What are your favored 1911 grips?

Sharkskin (plastic) - no way will they slip!

Is the texture sort of abrasive or soft?

Abrasive, which is why their called shark skin I think, but not so much as to be a distraction, however, your hands will not slip which is the goal.  I tried VZ and went back immediately.  I am an absolute fan.   I just wish they made a full length for 1911s with mag wells. I am putting them on every 1911 I compete with.  I haven't found a traditional slab side grip with more traction.  Check out Brownell's for the best price.

Hard plastic and abrasive no flex and no movement like in rubber grips.  Comfort isn't always good.

Hogue "wrap around" finger groove grips are legal for bullseye, but were previously not CMP legal.  I will re-read the new rules and let you know what I find.

I agree with Dave.  I love the Kensight Sharkskin slabs with aggressive checkering on my front strap and mainspring housing.  The gun doesn't move even with the heaviest recoil.
