    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.

    Nice.

    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)-

    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.
