I currently have a 1911 that is a user gun. Not designed to be pretty, just as reliable as possible with the features I want.

Currently I have a set of wooden grips on it that I really don't like. The checkering is poor and does not provide a great grip. Bottom line...I want new grips.

I like the thin grips, but since this is a user and not my primary concealed carry gun I was thinking of trying the new Ergo Grips.

Any comments on quality. Again beauty is not an issue. A user friendly grip that will work for concealed carry is.

Does this grip work well?

Is this grip about the same thickness as the standard 1911 grips?

I am not a fan of the Hogue wrap around grips so if this grip is similar I will not like it.

Thanks for your advice and opinions.

I bought a Sig GSR that came with them. I didn't care for them, so I took them off pretty quickly.

They seem to be very well made.

As to work well: they certainly grip well. Other than that it's too subjective.

Seem to be about the same thickness as a standard grip.

Nothing like Hogue grips at all.

That said, if you'd like to try them before you buy, you're welcome to borrow mine for a while. I'd like to keep them in the event that I sell that Sig, but you're welcome to take them for a spin before you buy a pair.

Ray,

Thanks...I may take you up on the offer.

Currently I really like the Navidrex grips, but I really don't want to change the grip screw bushings and grips screws.

May I ask what you replaced your Ergo Grips with?

I put on Fusion Firearms Slim grips similar to these: http://www.fusionfirearms.com/servlet/Detail?no=139

I have slim grips on my Officer's model and love them for carry. After shooting my new Springer with regular grips on it though, I'm thinking about going back to standard grips.

I'm also thinking about experimenting with standard thickness on one side and slim on the other.
