    Never seen those before, don't think I'd be interesting in adding that much thickness to a 1911. I've never had issues with standard or thin grips, never wanted them thicker so I can't see any big advantage to those. Roco makes a set of grips with a slight palmswell, the S&W 1911 9mm Pro Series comes with them from the factory. They're comfortable, I have a set on one of my guns, but I don't find that there is any great advantage to them, which is why they're only on one of my guns.

    I also find their idea to add weight in the grips suspect, adding weight in the grip area wouldn't give any recoil control advantage. If anything, I would think that it would increase muzzle flip/rise by changing the balance of the gun by making the heavier grip area a pivot point.

    What did they do to the thumb safety?

    Wow, that's odd.

    Didn’t even notice that safety. I have no idea why someone would pin a thumb safety off.

    Does not look like a pinned safety, more of a limit to how low it will travel in the off position. But who knows...

    I’m just got the Ergo Positechs on one of mine with XT mag well. I absolutely love them. I get a much much better grip on the gun than I do with the SureTec aggressive I was running previously. . So much so that I ordered more ergos to replace my remaining SureTecs. They are now hands down my favorite grips. Much more room for support hand.

    I assume it's a crude way of keeping the safety on the demo frame.
