    As the title says, been contemplating a set of stag grips, ala Longmire, just for the fact they look good. Never owned any, no idea how they feel when shooting etc. just wondering if this is normal for an addict?

    I picked these up in the classifieds like new at a great price. Made by SK Grips. No problem shooting them they are not rough on the hand but give you something to grip.

    Once upon a time I truly disliked stag and ivory and similar grips.

    Then, along came “Longmire,” and I got hooked haha.

    Granted, I do want frontstrap checkering or at least some grippy tape on an otherwise smooth frontstrap when carrying /shooting a 1911 equipped with them.

    The holster doesn’t look quite so new now, but the pic shows the flip-side of the stags from the post above...

    I know it’s not a Colt like Walt’s...nonetheless, my attempt at Longmire-ishness haha...

    I wouldn’t use them for long sessions but I get a decent purchase on them especially with front strap checkering

    I have a set of stag on my Remington R1 my wife got them for me from out of Texas. I know that they aren’t on a Colt Commander like Walts. But they look just like his. I would post a picture, if I could figure out how. I’m OLD and this new fangled equipment is too much for me. I can barely turn this dam thing on.

    For some reason I like stags on my S&W revolvers but on a 1911 I just didn't like the feel-perhaps I just got a set that weren't shaped right for my hands. Almost felt too thick and couldn't get as good a grip as full checkered wood grips give me. Sure do like the way they look however lol.

    These are exceptionally nice set.. Exactly what I think of when I think a good pair of stag grips.. Plenty of grain for a good grip and the extra color really adds a depth and richness to the whole tone and reason for stag grips imo.. I see no reason for horn or bone grips if they are not detailed as nicely as these.. Not all sets come out with as much detail, but this is what I'd want.

    I tried them in a standard size, but they weren't a good fit for me. I was able to get some slims and I like them a lot.

    Upon looking at the rest of the pictures, the ones I purchased are not nearly as smooth and quite a bit thicker....Ignore me and carry on! ( Rosewood and smooth burl fan here )

    I have some and I like them. But it’s mainly for the cool factor. Lots of grips out there that are more grippy. But I like a nice set of grips on a 1911 or a SAA. A classy firearm needs some classy grips. :)
