Wood, but that's only because I despise rubber and plastic grips. I don't care for black on black either.

However... https://www.amazon.com/s?k=herrett+g...f=nb_sb_noss_1

I have several pair of those Herrett 10 dollar grips and have been pleased with them.

Wood! By far. Screw that dull gray/black grip set. I could see those working on a stainless gun though.

The pics seems to suggest that gun owner has both sets of grips.

IMO I would use the rubber grips that's me. I can't stand smooth grips. Mine came with pearl green zombie houges and I despised them. I have a 1911 airsoft from crossman and used the grips off that untill I got a set of houge rubber grips

Ps the idiot marks or from previous owner

Same here, if buying a new set wasn't an option.

Depends on where you live. The use of the pistol. How sweaty your hands get. Etc.

The wood looks better but my hands would slip from sweat on them. I prefer rubber or G-10.

Wood grips look much better but the rubber grips of it’s a carry gun.

I thought I'd replied to this thread but I'm not seeing my reply.

I prefer nicely figured wood but I *Absolutely require* checkering. Smooth is not acceptable!

I prefer the rubber grips. It’s too warm here in Florida for smooth wood grips.

I really like the Super Rosewood grips from Altamont. Double diamond with a thin border around the entire grip.

I have put them on two Kimbers and my Springfield EMP. They look great, and feel great. They satisfy my old school approach to 1911s; wood, double diamond, with a bit of flair. I like them better than the crossed cannons grips that came on the EMPís stock grips, and they are thicker to give my hand a better grip on that little gun.

Scroll down to the Standard Textures section on the linked page.
