I have ran VZ grips for a while… long while. The 10-8 Signature 1911 grips are like those… just a hair better in every objective way. The checkering is a hair better. The color is a hair more consistent. The cuts, scoops, and fit are just a hair better. It’s like 10-8 went to VZ and cherry picked grips that they wanted to put their medallions on.
