I just got a set of black Hogue grips for my Springfield.

Improves the looks 100%. Plus the soft rubber checkered

has a great feel.

Both Remington 1911s together...


Here's a pic of the Talo edition which has Rosewood grips along side my new stainless with G10 grips.

Nice R!S, although I don't like the grips personally. I just picked one up myself for $690 before tax, $740 after tax. Bought a stainless 8 round mag to go with it for $26 after tax. I got new grips on the way for it as I want something different then the rosewood like it has on it now.

How would you compare them to a SA mil spec?

The Talo edition has the custom Rosewood Grips with the Remington Medallion.

The stock R1 and R1S both come with Walnut Wood Grips and no medallion embedded.

My bad, I thought they were rosewood, might be walnut though. Don't know much about wood grips. I personally don't like them.
