    I am lookng for some new slim profile grips for my 1911.

    Do you guys prefer the Aluminum grips, or G-10 Composite type grips ....

    I've found some nice wood ones also, which is what I have now ....

    I'm not sure what the differences would be other than general texture and feel.

    I prefer the G10. I have had both and sold all my Alumagrips for VZ. As far as the texture is concern you have more options with the VZ than any alum grips that I know of. Plus you have more color combo with the G10 grips (unless you consider custom painting/anodization) Just my 2 cents :)

    When I IWB carry I like wood.(they don't snag on my cloths when drawing).
    When I OWB carry I like my Hogue Wrap around

    I like the feel of VZs', G10, Elite Tactical Carry, on my 1911.

    I ordered a pair of VZ Operator grips in the Black Sand color this morning .. Some of the others mentioned didn't offer slim profile. Got the new bushings and screws to go with.

    I went with the G-10 Operator Slim Grips From VZ in Black Desert Sand color ...

    I like them. Added a little extra grip to the front strap while I was at it.

    I ordered the grips late Saturday evening, and received them in the mail on Wednesday.
