I hate the stock grips on my 45ACP m1911 can anyone recamend any better feeling ones
Hogue rubber grips feel pretty good, they thicken the grip.
I've bought a fews sets here,(http://www.altamontco.com/experimental/) but everyone has them MidwayUSA, Brownells, Cheaper than Dirt and there are a whole lot on E-Bay search "1911 grips"
The Colt in the main pic belongs to one of our Mods here...
+1 make shooting my officers model enjoyable.
Depends on what "feel" you're looking for. Thin, thick, soft, checkering, etc. Infinite possibilities out there. Then of course comes looks. I would try out several to find what suits you.
Nill makes very nice grips. Not only for competition like mine, also regular grips.
I want a very soft grip
If you want soft, you should probably look at Hogue wrap-arounds.
If you don't like the 'wrap-around', I believe Hogue also makes the rubber panels. One caution though if you conceal carry it. Depending on what your cover garment is, it may tend to cling to the rubber grips & print. Also, if you should need to shift your grip, they seem to make it more difficult for some folks.
G10 all the way. They're indestructible and most patterns are made to Bite into your hand and not let go.
I found that soft is relative.
If you have a nice set of wood grips, that fit like a glove, it feels better then any rubber grip.
I also was the opinion, that I must have a set of Paychmar signature oder american Legend grips on my Series 70, but then I slpapped on the Nill competition grips and I love them.
Very warm feeling, the texture is very nice and it just fits like a glove.
