Try Esmeralda grips.com. She carries several different sizes—full, slender, etc.
I have Esmeralda grips on all three of my Bears. By my standards they fit just fine.

Another endorsement for the Sig p210. I have the target model and just shoot it for S&G, but I can shoot it better than any of my 1911s. Cosmetically perfect, made in America.

The pull averaged (on a Lyman gage) 4lbs 2 oz for the Legion.

The Sig on-line catalog says the Legion’s trigger pull is “up to 30% lighter”. Lighter than what? It certainly felt lighter than either of my P320s but without my Lyman, can’t quantify by how much.

I handled a Legion X-5 today at the LGS. Was amazed at the “weight” which in my view was about the same as a loaded 1911. Also, the mgr made sure I tried the trigger which was significantly superior...

My 1969 vintage M41 wouldn’t work worth a darn with Federal Automatch—missfires.
My shooting chums shamed me into trying CCI-SV which I did and the problem went away.

My Lyman gage indicated 20 percent high over a range of approx. 2-7 lbs.
I made a calibration curve using known weights and just use it along with the gage reading to get the “real” test value.
