My favorite revolver grips are Ahrends.

I shoot Glock autos so no grips to talk about there.

I use my 1911 for Bullseye and I really like the Houge finger grips. I have them on my Ruger MarkII too. If I were going to replace the Houges I would probably get Herretts. Randel Fong makes some nice grips as does Esmerelda. I might have butchered the spelling.

Thats one of the nice things about the 1911. The choice of grips is almost endless.

For the 1911, I have to have flat grips. My hands are too small, fingers too short for anything more 'filling' than basic size and shape GI grips. I've handled one or two sets of 'finger grooved' grips I could get around, but the grooves seem to be in the wrong place.

I prefer wood to plastic; I like the looks better. I must confess to having an old set of Black "Mother of Plastic" (Pearlite, I think they called it) that I will get around to putting on something equally old. It's just sentimental; they are too slippery (especially when wet) to use for anything real.

I like the looks of the original 'big diamond' checkered grips. I once had a set of 'coffin lid' grips, made by a gentleman in San Diego; but foolishly traded them away with a pistol.

For (Smith & Wesson) revolvers, I think Herrett's Shooting Star series are as good as they get. The old and sadly out of production Fitz Gunfighter grips were very good as well. I don't like finger grooves on revolver grips even more than on an autopistol.

For Single Action revolvers, smooth wood is best. I'd like to try ivory or something close to it, but I'm not willing to turn loose of that much money.

I may be wrong, but I'm not in doubt!

I like VZ grips and the ones made by Davidson knives. Give it a classic modern look if there is such a thing!
