Nice, there known to be sweet shooters. I dont quite dig the grips but it looks like you got nice extended controls and good sights. Tell us how she runs when you bring her out

These do and they feel great but the grip is a bit thicker because of it

The finger grooves and the width of the grip panels make the grip bigger overall, which is the reason why I took mine off of my 1911. If your hands are big enough for them, they're surely nice, but if not, it's best to stick to standard grip panels.

Good for you and your new gun!

I had been hoping to get another type of wood grip but the hogue grips are growing on me. Do they really help with the recoil and control of the gun?

The gun itself cost me about 700 ish not including ammo and extra mag. I plan to buy at least another one buy next week
