I'm still waiting for my MIL-TAC grips. When talking to Craig, he stated that they will be more streamlined and thinner. Aside from being bulletproof and having a surface that won't cut, chip, rust, or wear out, that will dig into your hands better than rubber grips. I owned a pair of Hogue that got a huge tear from a slipped screwdriver that basically ruined them, which is why I am going to what SMU's and the military like, though they were cozy, but I had problems with them also with sweaty hands, which only happens only every time you shoot. I don't know if they made a composite change in the last 8 years, but for a grip that custom makers like Wilson Combat, Nighthawk Custom, and Springfield TRP's, grips like these premium guns have on them, go to MIL-TAC.
