I admit it. I'm a gripaholic. I've changed the stocks on my Springfield 1911A1 dozens of times, rubber grips, double diamond, smooth laminated, finger grooves, cocobolo, Pachmayr, drop-in checkered frontstrap, you name it. Sometimes I go for looks, and sometimes whatever feels good in my hands.

Next on my "wanna buy" list is a set of Ahrens (sp?) thin stocks that I'd like to try out with Pierce rubber finger grooves. I tried the Pierce along with a set of green/black smooth laminated wood stocks, and they looked great, but were a little too thick for my tastes.

Anyone else want to testify?

Getcha a Glock and avoid this problem.

Not yet but I fear I may become one. I currently have hogue rubber grips because the factory was out of wood. Since it wasn't my fault I have the option to buy standard coco bola grips at cost when they come in. So that will be two sets, but I also really want to try the hogue wrap around with the finger groves. Then when I have all three I'll have to make a decision. I have a feeling the rubber panels will be the odd man out.

I replaced the stock wood grips on my Springfield 1911A1 with steel reinforced black rubber grips, and I love 'em.

It ain't a pretty gun, and the rubber works.

Cheers,
Chris
