Altamont Grips, only charged me an extra $10 (total $45) to put the EGA on them. To match their 1911 grips. These are a couple of Austin Behlert works of art.

My FM M-95 wears Hogue aluminum:


My '94 and '96 MkIIIs both wear Larry Davidson's "horned lizard" grips:


I really need to get a better picture of both of them together, so that you can actually see the guns.

Awesome thread!!!

My favorite beater. Out of 20 or so Hi Powers (a few nice customs in there) this Lightweight is my favorite knock around gun. It shoots great, never fails and has evolved into a 4.25# trigger. The grips are Ergo. They are ugly as hell but super effective. Note the quality dehorn job (LOL)

I think the Spegals seem to be the hands on favorites. I agree about the Ergo's and their functionality.
....as a matter of fact, the mold for those has been dusted off, and I should have the first couple sets in hand tomorrow.
While talking to Ergo, they did ask for feedback in what BHP owners would like to see....

I have only used four types of grips thus far.

Factory walnut = feels like a 2x4.
Factory MkIII plastic = not horrible but the raised areas don't match up with my hands.
Spegels = looks and feel great in my hands. Thin where I want it, and I like the slight palm swell. Fit well on all BHPs I've owned.
VZ ProSlim = thin and seem to be very strong. A bit too flat feeling after getting used to the Spegels. Didn't fit on a MkIII .40 but did fit an old T series. I had to round a sharp bevel at the top rear near the safety in order to make them comfortable, but that is obviously dependant on grip, hand size, etc.

VZ ProSlims:


Spegels: (the lighting makes this look a little more red than in real life)


I have another pair of nearly identical Spegels on a .40 BHP.

The Spegels are rising to the top of my list.

1992 era MkIII with Spegel Delrins. Took it out to the range Sunday and had my LEO son worried for a little bit but he and his Service pistol (Glock 21) won out as usual. Hadn't shot the pistol for over a year. Forgot how great they are and how perfectly the Delrins fit my hand.

153, that's a great setup. Finish, sights, hammer, grips, base plate bumpers. What more could you want?

Why don't you send it to what's that company's name? Wilson or something? and have it refinished with that teflon slicky finish
