Default Ordered my first 1911, deciding on grips

Hey guys, going to be new to the 1911 scene as I followed suite of many and ordered a Tisas 1911. I'm looking forward to it coming in, but I don't like the style or appearance of the grips, just not my flavor. I am deciding between custom punisher grips or black checkered grips. Which would you guys choose? The black grips will be much cheaper, but the punisher grips look amazing. Here are the ones I'm looking at and a rough photo-chop I did of the punisher grips. The black ones will match my 45lc blackhawk, so that is part of why I'm really considering them.

Anyway, here are the links

Black checkered:

or

Punisher grips edit:

Thanks guys!

Google "custom 1911 grips" there are probably more grips made for the 1911 than any other pistol. hell, get a few sets and change them up to suit your mood!

haha I've noticed, I've came across hundreds already, which I definitely love how easy it is to customize these guns

Grips are way to personal for other to pick your grips when looks only are the prime concern.

I put a set of VZ grips on mine and love the feel and look. You can see them on the smaller 1911 in the picture
