I went with the slim S&A Mag-Guide and the slim VZ's. Wow! The 1911 is a slim handgun and with this set-up it's remarkable.

I have had more grips than most and I can say without hesitation, the VZ's provide the most purchase of any I have had in my hand!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

i hear ya Hossfly! i am on my third Mountain Dew and still not fully awake!

i need to do some shooting today with the new grips to test them out in a practical application. i didn't get to do any shooting last week due to rain, but loaded some ammo up during the week. the grips feel good in the hand, but the proof is in the shooting. i will try to offer up some reviews later tonight.
