    Curious which custom grip makers make 1911 grips, full size and commander, in wood with the thumb scoop for the magazine release?

    I have slowly been acquiring and installing Craig Spegal grips on all of my guns, I love both his work and the real wood, traditional double diamond checkering on a 1911, both in terms of looks and feel. That being said in a couple of recent classes and trainings its been mentioned that swapping out the standard grips for ones with the scoop would aid in reload speed and handling. So I find myself looking for an alternative to Craig's grips. I rather not go the VZ route just as I prefer wood as I mentioned, the only other custom grip maker that I personally know of that offers the scoop is Challis but I am hoping that there are others that might be more cost friendly........Id have a hard time putting his grips on one of my guns never mind all or a few.

    I have taken a dremmel to grips before. Some turned out nice, others not so much.
