Yesterday I bought Hogue's basic 1911 grip. Black rubber with the original diamond design. It was around $16.

They look so much better than my original U.S. wood grips..

Actually I like them a lot Andy!! I have had several of the Hogue grips over the years, on several different guns, but never have I seen those. I want a set for my new RIA Tactical.

eh. why? It shoots accurate. I get no pinch so no need for beavertail. Trigger would be alright but this isnt any competition gun. Self defense mainly

Very nice! I too prefer black rubber to wood. My 1911 wears identical grips but without the Hogue symbol.

They look good. Take a gander at VZ Grips though, they are very nice.

Must be a generational thing.

For a working gun that takes a day-to-day beating I like rubber grips. For grips that get banged on fence posts, pickup door frames, cattle gates and various other hard objects, I think rubber is preferable.

However, wood grips have their place as well...

Im going to get my Hogue 1911 wrap around grips with the finger grooves.That should make my 1911 fit my hand a bit better.I wont be getting any custom work on mine either,i bought my PT1911 to have everything i wanted out of the box.
Once you start having work done it invites more oppertunities for issues to start and must be worked out by you or a smith.
I found out the hard way with my G20c,mods made it a jam-o-matic while it was 100% prefectly working out of the box.Now i have a bunch of mod/add-ons for a glock i refuse to put back on.

I like wood on a 1911 but to each their own and they look great too!
