The RIA doublestack (Para) grip feels bigger, wider & blocky compared to my 2011's. RIA is also hefty in comparison which mitigates recoil, but may slow transitions for some. IMO if you are larger in stature neither will matter as much.
The weight diffence between the poly grip (or even billet grip) 2011 and all steel RIA doublestack is definitely somewhat noticeable after a few hours in a USPSA Limited belt rig.
No way I'd tote that RIA doublestack around for CCW.

Kevin makes a valid point.
