I'm taking a survey to see what type of grips most guys use or recommend for their wadcutter guns.

Slabs are most in use, with a million different kinds out there to choose from. Ive tried many types, best for the money, kinsight sharkskin (polymer not real) midway usa about 20 bucks, even better grip is to take a set of smooth grips and cover with 3m grip tape from home depot, a roll is 6 bucks and will do about 20 pairs. Micarta aggressive golf ball dimples are very nice at about 50 bucks.

I have used various types of 1911 Wad grips, some I still have but changed back to the standard size 1911 grips.

Hogue Rubber Grip with Finger Grooves.  I usually try to match the color of my Crocs.

Herrett Nationals with skateboard tape. Best I have found and went thru the whole gauntlet of trying everything. Big plus is that the 41s, HS, 952, 22/45 and 1911s all feel the same.

I was thinking the Herrett nationals also because I have them on my 41 also.

OH GOLLY....! I and my son use Kensight Sharkskins also.  For those that like finger grooves

covering the front strap...forget it unless the finger grooves have three flats to lock the fingers

into the grip. Circular finger grooves aren't nearly as good as grip tape even.  If you finger

groove folks don't know what I'm trying to convey; search the web for anatomical grips provided

with Morini, Fwb, Pardini Walther, and Benelli rimfire or air pistols.

Rink Formgriffe has many photos of their anatomical grips. Here's a link, to Rink...   http://www.formgriffe.de/en/  

The three flats match the finger joint creases formed by a gripping hand.

Have battled the .45 sliding around in my hand with everything that I have tried in the past.

With the VZ Simonich Gunner side panels, Clark Sr. shark tooth stippling on the front strap and a Smith and Alexander 20 LPI checkered arched main spring housing at the rear, I now have complete satisfaction.

YMMV

If you are holding the 1911 properly, you don't need any at all.

Back strap in crease ("life line") between thumb and forefinger, front strap
 at last joint of second and third finger.
take a credit card and grab it like that- you'll see what I mean.
There should be no contact between the grip and palm, only space.
Initially it feels like recoil will jar the gun free, but it won't.
