    Before, After, & After Pics

    Sorry for the too large after, after pics! I tried resizing them twice on photobucket, and the files even say they are the same size as the others, but I can't get them smaller. If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated!!!

    SOOO Skinny!!!



    These grips are great! The thickness of the stock grips just never felt right.

    This thing is now puuurrrrfect!!! (For me, anyway!)

    If anyone has ever questioned their grip on a 1911, try a set of slim profile grips. You'll be amazed.

    SEXY 1911! I'd be proud to call it mine, you should be too.

    Very nice, very clean. I trust you'll enjoy.

    Anyone mind briefing me on what the bobtailing does?

    BAC,

    As you can see from the photos, bobtailing rounds off the bottom rear corner of the grip. The theory behind it is that it helps keep the pistol from catching the overgarment, thus concealing better. Some people swear by it. Some people claim it's a gimmick. I have not tried it yet, so I don't claim it's right or wrong.

    BTW--Nice S&W.

    Cheers,
    Herk

    I can't see it being cost affective for any difference it provides, but what fun would life be if we only did things that were only cost affective. The work appears to be top notch.
