    VZ grips for 1911

    I've heard a lot of good things about VZ grips and was wondering if anyone here uses them on their 1911. I've been looking at the "alien" grips and would appreciate some input before I make the purchase. I'm also debating whether to do the "thumb notch" or not.

    Pictures would be helpful if anyone has them! Thanks!

    I've had more sets than I can currently recall. I prefer the 320s or Tactical Diamonds if the gun is for carry. Some of the grip offerings are too coarse or edgy. I did not find the Aliens to be that comfortable while shooting or carrying.

    As for the mag notch I can take it or leave it.

    I have the Frag Grips with the smaller thumb notch. Very aggressive not real comfy for carrying all day (do-able) great for competition/ general shooting.

    I wish I would have gotten the larger thumb notch, I prefer the way it looks and feel getting to the mag release would be even easier.

    The "scoop" notch can be a little irritating, I had to take a file and sand paper to tame the top edge of the cut
