    Received the grips in the mail today. A little thick but such a good fit to the pistol.

    Just an update. I contacted Wylie Leather about returning the grip panels.
    I explained it was my hand size and not his panels that was the reason.
    This guy was great. He offered a return of my purchase. He offered a set of 'slim' grips he also had and he sent pics. I agreed to the exchange and the slims are just as nice as the standards.
    I'll install some slim bushings, but couldn't resist trying them on the same pistol I had put the standards on.
    Just credit where credit is due.
