took my Norc to the indoor range to try out my new tome hogues,and MAN do I love 'em ! improved my groups tremendously...from crappy to mediocre,LOL

the 'flyers' are my 1 handed attemtps,the bullseyes are 2 handed.best i've ever done with it. only 25 feet,but we're talking A-zone here !

Those are the same grips I use at the range, swap them out for either coco or rosewood grips while its a safe queen.

I notice a lot more control and and firmness in the grip.

Not a bad grouping either.

If you want to improve your trigger over stock before a trigger job, buy the custom Wilson combat spring kit from midway. My stock trigger on my smith was great stock but even better after the spring upgrade. My trigger is probably about 3 buttery pounds now.

I have never seen a 1911 stamped "Made in China"! I though the 1911 was the last great american invention not to have hit their shores.

I think the Norc 1911 first came out in the late 80s / early 90s - that's when I bought mine. They often look like crap, but there's some awesome steel in those guns and they clean up real nice, too.

Immidiately after buying my American Classic Commander, I bought a set of OD Green Hogue grips for it. The wood stockers left a red mark on my skin and irritated me so offf they came as it is my carry gun. I absolutely love them and they improved MY accuracy quite a bit.

I've put the Hogues on all of the guns I plan to shoot. Taurus PT1911, Sig C3, Chiappa 1911-22, Kimber 1911 ARF, Colt/Ranger 1911, and even a Colt AR-15. Dad has them on his Springfield 1911 mil-spec and his Colt Special Combat Gov't Model. They really do make a difference.

Nice group. I'm more of a Pachmayr guy myself when it comes to rubber grips, though. Have the classic wraparounds on my Milspec, definitely fills the hand better.

Most comfortable range grips I have ever used. I don't have them on my carry guns because they tend to grab the covering garment but if I am gonna pound a lot of rounds.down range I put them on.
Meet me, Jesus, meet me in the middle of the air, if my wings should fail me, Lord, please meet me with another pair, so I can die easy.
