    First off, I have no ties whatsoever with Duragrips. I just have to give credit where credit is due. These grips rock! They are called "Wasps Nest" and are grippier than hell. I actually purchased a different set at first, but changed my order when I saw these. I'll shoot it tomorrow and let you guys know how they feel.

    Now line up your screw heads or better yet, get some hex drive screws to match :D

    It says on the website they're made of a hard polymer material. Whatever they're made of, its a really tough material. There was a little bur on the corner of one of them, so I took a file too it and was very surprised how hard they are.

    I'm a big fan of DuraGrips products - terrific grips, great prices, and fast service. I like their beveled Gritty Grips, I have a set on each of my carry guns, OD green on my Springfield Loaded and black on my Fusion CCO. They fit perfectly and I think they look good, nothing fancy, strictly business.
    Don't have a pic of the Springer with the grips on it but this is my Fusion (posing w/my S&W)-

    Looks good! Will definitely consider those on my next 1911.

    Went to the range today and shot it. What a difference these make! I have a RIA 1911 in 9mm and its definitely receiving a set of these.

    I figured you really like them once you got to try them out for real. They make good stuff.

    Here's a pic of my Springfield with the OD Gritty Grips-

    Top screw needs to be cranked 1/418 of a turn clockwise :):) Seriously, looks good. I like the hex head screws.

    Man, you guys are tough!

    I'll take a better picture when it gets back from the gunsmith. Its going in for a trigger, hammer, sear and beavertail.
