TEXTURE: Very Aggressive
USE: Tactical, IPSC, IDPA, etc.
Made in the USA of nearly indestructible G10. These are the same basic design as the original Operators, we just replaced the large aggressive checkering next to the front strap with an aggressive golf ball pattern. We have also added a thumb recess for the magazine release. This is a very functional grip for the tournament shooter or those in the tactical high speed environment.

If your looking for a cut above the regular Hogue and Pachmyer grips, get some of these. Unlike the latter, which tend to get a little too tacky when doing a lot of shooting in high heat areas, these do not. It is easy to maintain a good solid grip without any slip and the regular pattern doesn't seem to get too uncomfortable after prolonged use. They do cost a bit more, but I do like them a lot.
Ordered a pair for my Rock Island Tactical pistol. They look great. Finish is flat, not glossy. VZ says the Operator is "aggressive" in roughness. I didn't find them that rough at all. Good feel for me and I have very average sized hands; not farmer rough or paper-pusher soft hands either. The right side safety lever (for my left thumb) was touching the top of the grip panel. The safety still worked but I didn't like that it touched so I used a fine sanding drum on my Dremel tool and very carefully sanded a few hundreds off the top of the grip panel right under the safety lever. Now it fits perfect. Doing this did not discolor the panel. I like that these grips are US made. A little pricey but I guess the best costs. I would buy again.
The grip pattern is very Aggressive. Personally I love these grips way more than I expected. These grips are standard issue on my new Dan Wesson 1911 Specialist. The feel is like that of the checkered front and back strap all the way around the hand / grip weld. Perhaps the only thing missing on these is a palm swell area, instead of the asymmetrical tapering they come with. Just about as perfect as a 1911 grip panel can be.
