I just got the Para-Ord ops used from a local gunstore. I feel like I got a pretty good deal on it. It has a 3.5 inch barrel and is 7+1. It came with pretty nice rubber hogue grips but I'd like to find something a little slimmer to put on it. Where could I find that online?
I guess standard panels would be thinner so thats what I'd be looking for.
Personally I like the VZ's best.
This maybe s dumb question so forgive me...I assume my frame is the government model. I couldn't find it on the para-ord website. Thanks.

I have a set of the thin Wood Grips panels on my Colt CCO (Officer frame), and I really like them. Be sure to check them out!
You might also want to look at the Arizona company Alumagrips, which makes a variety of slim grips for both officer size and government size. The grips stick to your hand very well without sharp checkering:

Those are pretty slick, I was comptemplating them untill I remembered that aluminum gets cold, and if those suckers hit kidney I'd jump out of my skin. Then again pending on the climate of your residence it's irrelevent, but here in PA I gotta think of it.
But with respect to aluminum grip panels, I haven't found this to be a problem. This is because the aluminum is never touching your skin during carry due to a garment (undershirt) between the grip and the skin. Also, the gun is at indoor temperature when you put it on in the morning, and stays at a high temperature because it is close to your body and under your clothing.
