new to 1911 world




Went to a local gun show. After some dealing I got a RIA compact. I've put about 100 rnds
Through it with no complaints except the grips. The smooth wood is nice but slick. I have some pins in my wrist and on round 4 or 5 my point og impact drifts low and right.
Would some grippier grips help? My other handgun is a 357 mag with what taurus calls a ribber grip.

I know the one you're talking about.
There are none like that for 1911s that's I'm aware of.


I'd suggest you try a wrap around Hogue rubber grip.
they're one of the best "pure function" grips on the market..(imHo)

they're a wonderful grip, just not real eye candy appealing .
Inexpensive enough they won't break the bank either..and they're virtually indestructible t'boot

Check prices at Cheaper than Dirt also,they carry Hogue and other brands as well and seem to be very competive in the price department.

I have Hogue grips on several pistols and like them, unfortunately I do not have them on a 1911 as yet.

got the Raasco grips.

Raasco's are NICE, and their customer service is great. ordered and recieved in 9 days, fit and finish are great. Crimson Ironwood with a double diamond checkering.
Put about 75 rounds through it today, point of impact is much better and the gun is much more controllable for me. I had zero malfunctions with winchester white box ammo.
And except for needing to learn not to let my left thumb get anywhere near the moving slide, it was a very good morning.
