    Been thinking of getting some rubber hogue grips for my SR1911, the wood just doesn't have the grip I'm looking for. What do you guys like?

    Pachmayr works well for me and I also have them on the Browning HP.

    I have grown fond of LOK grips for my 1911, CZs, and Berettas.

    If you're interested I'll trade you the factory Hogue rubber grips off my SR1911 10mm for your factory wood ones.

    Love the Hogue rubber finger groove grips. Thin on the sides, adds a little length, feels great. I don't CCW it so the soft rubber is ok.

    Have tried a few different ones but like to go with either Pachmayrs (sometimes with the front strap removed and I prefer the ones with the Colt medallion), or the factory wood grips (really like the look and feel of the double diamond grips that came on my newer Colts). The Kim Ahrends' Rosewood skip checkered grips (on my TacSol .22 conversion), are also nice to look at as well as giving a solid feel to the grips.

    Me too! Love them on my Hi-Power but I do have a pair of Hogue wood grips for when I want to dress things up a bit.

    I like Pachmayr Presentation grips on my M1911's. I also have them on my HiPower, Beretta M84 and M96

    I like smooth wood grips, especially on a frame with an undercut trigger and front strap checkering.

    This set is currently on my 5" blued Colt XSE.

    Can't stand rubber on a semiauto.
    VZ grips grip you back! Perfect for a serious pistol.

    Smith & Alexander "full checkered mahogany".

    These are a little "broke in", but they still work great. They have more meat up through the center of the panel, giving them more swell through the palm than your standard walnut panels. Makes for a fuller feeling grip with less movement. About as close to stippling a set of plastic panels as youre going to get, without them being plastic or rubber.

    Those Hogue grips have no grip, they came stock on my Dan Wesson. It now wears VZ grips.

    any grip that isnt gonna rub, catch my shirt and scratch at me while carry iwb. rubber annoys me due to rubbing and shirt catching/sticking. super aggressive and sharp texture g10 or plastic type grips annoy me also. im digging on elk stag grips right now for carry. 15612120189723675588605901990679.jpg

    shooting wise type doesnt matter to me. like them all rubber, aggressive grips, wood, whatever.

    I tried them, wasn't all that impressed. They felt cheap.

    The VZ are pretty nice when combined with the front and rear checkering, the Sig sits well in my hands. OTOH, under the trigger guard where the checkering stops, that little ledge bites into the computer nerd hands I have.

    Well their nowhere close to the feel of wood, polymer nor rubber. But my cartel metal 1911 grips feel pretty good and dampens recoil. Looks good too.

    6E2D8266-61B1-4A79-9E77-3029D892AF7C.jpeg I like my textured G 10 grips. I’ve had good luck with the wood but for CCW rubber tends to catch my clothing and it rides up.
