The ball cuts on the front of the grips and vertical serrations really do a great job of locking your hands in

jsedacca,

That is precisely what we were trying to accomplish.  Took nearly a year to finally zero in on all the right cuts, depth of cuts, and overall dimensions. 

Thank you for the feedback  :)

Is there a planned ETA on the compact version?

Would you rate these better than the H6-2-1 black waffle pattern slim G10 grips?

Have not seen them on the web site lately, however these appear to be a worthy replacement.

Any measurements on width? Have a Co-Worker trying to make the DA reach on a Shadow work and so far we are struggling to find anything thin enough.  Needs to stay IPSC Production legal so the short reach kit isn't a solution.

FWIW,  Just one work-around:

I have the same trigger finger reach problem with my 75 Shadow and a comp. back-up 75B.
If you look carefully at the thin aluminum grips,  the only part that shortens your reach to the trigger is the very top of the grip on the strong hand side just above the frame opening.
Cut it off.

Sounds bad,  but it cannot be seen if you cut it off just a 1/32"- above the frame opening.  I cut mine off and carefully sanded the top edge with a small bevel to make it smooth.   At that point,  your trigger finger is against the frame.   It works.  No grip made can be thinner than this.
The grip has a small inset into the frame opening and is just as secure as it ever was.

If I could get my new computer to post a pic,  you wouldn't know it's cut unless told ahead of time.

I also did this with some home made aluminum grips as well as the strong side of some LOK grips.  ALL work perfectly with no movement or problems.

Thanks for the tip. Wonder if it would be considered IPSC Production legal.

Grips of the same general shape and not having thumb rests etc..  are "USPSA" legal.  IPSC,  you'll have to czeck.

USPSA  D-4,    21.4:
• Replacement grip panels are allowed provided they do not extend below the butt of the gun to form a make-shift magwell.

Sure they will soon.  It's hard to rush perfection. ;)

Anyone have pics of the new grips on an Urban Gray finish?  Trying to figure out what color would work best... Thanks!

I'm looking to add the Copper Grips to my SP-01. They look great.
