Default 1911 grip help

I want some thing that if if thrown into a blender, these ingredients would be----broken glass, barbed wire, Thorny Devil, 50 grit sandpaper, Gorilla Glue, and a Thorny tree. Turned into Commander size grips for my SIG Nitron Carry.

Can anybody point me in the right direction?

I understand the pro and cons of such aggressiveness. Just looking if anybody eles rolls with grips like this.

i am guessing you are looking for a grip that is textured so that it doesn't slip when your hands are wet? if so check out the ERGO Grips. i have a pair and they are pretty well textured and grip well.

I have no idea what springfield puts on their TRP, but it kind of feels like how you describe.

I have vz grips and they offer a crazy griping surface. I tried several other grips and completely happy with the vz's

I've concidered trying a set myself-
Was wondering how they felt -
They are fairly inexspensive-
Might try a pair now

How about leather?

As in snake skin.



But if you want real aggressive 1911 grips, I'd go with the VZ's.

Simonich Gunner Grips

Operators

Operators II

VZgrips.com or Brownells have all the different styles of VZ Grips. I like the Operators II because they stick like glue! You will think you have a new gun.
