    I had the same old Herrett's on my Commander since I got it. I found a pair of book end fully checkered cocobolo thin grips. I prefer a slot screw but none were available at the time. Grrrrrrr. The new grips really provide a positive purchase for a guy with short fingers.

    I had a pair of those Herrett stocks years ago on a 1911 I took in trade.

    They always reminded me of Argyle socks for some reason.

    I hate Argyle socks. :mad2:

    DAT85 :lol:

    I agree with the others here! I'm not too fond of the first pair, but the second pair is like a breath of fresh air! Well done :thumb:
