My XD .45 ACP Tactical along with my PT1911 which I posted on another thread. Since that post I've swapped out the factory plastic grips for a set of Hogue rubber wraparounds. :D

That's quite a duo you have there Taurus. [^] I have the same thing & they are both great pistols.

Thank you Kansas45, they are great indeed. Just curious, but did you leave the factory grips on your PT1911 or swap them out for something else? The majority of PT1911 owners I've spoken to or from posts I've read from ones talking about the grips, it seems around 98% - 99% changed theirs. While they'r really not all that bad, I can think of so many nicer types of grips available for 1911s. :D

Thank you SgtKnuckles, IMO they not only look better than the factory grips but feel quite a bit better too. :D

Well Taurus I changed the grips. I didn't like the hard plastic ones that came on the gun, it didn't hve the wooden ones that some come with. I like the palm swell 1911 Hogue grips & that is what I
put on my PT. They don't let the gun move in my hand even when I'm sweating during a hot, summer day or when it's raining at a match or at the range.

And here are my XD 45's. A Tactical & a Service model.

I tried a Hogue fingergroove wrap around grip on the XD's but it seemed to slip around a little. I put a Decal Grip on the Tactical & used skateboard tape on the service. Not much difference in the two, but I like the skateboard tape better. It might be because it only cost about $7.00 for a roll big enough to make a lot of grips! I have found that it works good on the front strap of my 1911's as well. I have even put it on the front of the PT1911. I know that some of the guy's cringe when they hear about skateboard tape on a 1911, but it works good for me! :D

Very nice Kansas45, our pistols could be brothers. :D

The grips on your PT1911 are very similar to the ones I have on my PT92. The Hogues just really feel good to the hand.
