I have those same grips, which are Hogue btw. Definitely recommended if you want a relatively slim profile, except for the palm swell. The palm swell makes it pretty tough to grab wrong.

I love my hogues, they feel great. I dont really have to worry about sweaty plams. I feel it does help with accuracy. Since your forced to hold it the same way everytime you shoot it works on your mussle familiarity so you know witch way to hold it

I have Hogue's w/finger grooves, on my 1911. Love 'em! I used to shoot with gloves on to avoid getting bitten. I improved and became consistent with my grip and don't need them any more. They tell me that this is one of the most important parts of good shooting. I don't get bitten any more. When I do, it means sloppy form.

I have the same grips on my Springfield and Rock Island and they fit my hand perfectly. I'm looking for a pair for my Colt New Agent but haven't found any yet.

Those are the same grips I use. I really like them. They dont look as cool as wood. But they sure do give a great non slip grip.

Packmyer ( spelling) grips are great especially on a 1911

Default Grips for 1911

I am an expert shot with my Colt Gold Cup National match .45ACP and have been shooting for over 40 years. Last week I put the one piece Hogue grips with finger grooves on my Colt 1911. I wish I had done this a long time ago.

The gun feels like it is glued to my hand. Extremly comfortable and easier to control. It improved my shooting.

Love the Hogue grips on my 1911. They improved grip and accuracy. It also reduced muzzle flip and the vibration from recoil.

My Kimber Custom Combat Carry .45acp with officers grip.

I had a set of standard Pachmayr Grips on one of my Colt Gold Cup and they were real nice for a standard type grip. However I like the Hague's on Rab's Pistol those look and I am sure they feel great.
