But white grips (checkered buffalo bone) make it tolerable. Was thinking about getting it Ionbonded or Melonited. Swapped grips between my newly acquired Heritage RZ45 and my homebuilt STI .38 Super. Now I'm not so sure. :evil:
I've had the same grips on my Springfield for about a year now. I switch back between them and Hogue finger grips.
Yeah, I got the grips on ebay. Hope you didn't pay too much for them. I think I paid $40.:confused:

I prefer stainless on a 1911, or maybe even a stainless frame and a blued slide. But revolvers....it's gotta be blued!

I have a couple of stainless 1911's. I prefer a good blue.
Years ago, when stainless was hitting the scene with autoloaders, galling was a problem.
I wonder if any of you high volume 1911 shooters have had this problem with recent made 1911's.

No complaints here!

White grips look great on stainless or blue. It's the non vertical slide serrations I can't handle for some reason.

Man oh Man does that Les Baer give me a fuzzy feeling all over.
