    My Les Baer UTC has thin grips and they are okay.
    Both pistols have cut checkering on the front strap, but the DW is more aggressive.
    I guess I can tolerate thin grips if the checkering on the front strap is moderate.

    As a reference, a Generation 2 (no finger groves) Glock 19/23 is just about perfect.
    A Kahr P9 feels too thin.
    I put Hogue (does not cover front strap) grips on the DW.
    Yes, I had to replace bushings & screws.
    No, they do not look anywhere near as good as the VZ.
    However, they are thicker and that was the objective.
    No internal lock or magazine disconnect on my pistols!
