I am considering a st of VZ grips. Does anyone have any experience with them? Are they better than the stock rubber grips? Are they worth the $? Any input woudl be much appreciated.

I love them. After trying many different grips, I have come to the conclusion that none of my Kimbers are complete without them. Perfect amount of grip, they don't snag or stick to garments when carrying concealed, they hold up very well to use, and they just plain look great!

Thanks guys for the information. My next question, are they the same size as the standard rubber grips. This size seems to fit my hand perfect.

I got a pair for my Eclipse and they just feel right. They look good too, the Black Paper made a pretty boy 1911 even prettier (but ugly enough to be my CCW).
I would have put a pair on my Colt but rosewood on a blued 1911 is something that just shouldn't be disturbed.

I have decided to get a set, but I have not yet decided which ones I want to put on my blue Pro Carry.

I think they feel and look better than the Simonich gunner grips by far.

Try the Black Paper Micarta. I think you'll be pleased.

That is what I had in mind.

Also thinking the black blasted canvas. Is one texture better than another?

Well I finally decided which I wanted to try on my Pro Carry. I went with the blasted black canvas. If they work out I plan to put them on my TLE as well.

I hope they feel as nice as they look. I have not yet received my comformation e-mail from them yet.

I just got my blasted black canvas VZ grips and put them on my Pro Carry. I got to say that I am more than pleased with the texture and appereance. Chances are I will be putting a matching set on my TLE.

Their are 3 different textures: paper, linen and canvas.

Brownells picked them up, listed in the #57 supplemental. Not all of the options are listed though, the VZ site's much better and a couple bucks cheaper.
