I'm trying to decide on which grip saftey I want on my RRA Standard Match. My only requirement is that it be made of quality tool steel. What are the differences between the various major players in this regard, like Wilson, Brown, Baer?

I like Ed Brown's myself,but they require trimming the bottom of the tang also.Best feel IMO.Wilson has a copy I think but not sure.Wilson,Bear,etc all make a good product.You really need to feel them to see which design and feel you prefer.

I like Ed Brown too. It looks and feels good. My thumb doesn't have to work harder to operate like Baer's.

Brown with the Memory Groove is very nice, but a Wilson with the Speed Bump works too.

I have also enjoyed the few ocassions with the Colt XS Dorsal Fin style. Feels a bit funky but works nicely!

I normally like the one that happens to be on any 45 I have in my hands on a day when the weather is about 70 degrees outside, it is sunny, and I have about 250 rounds of ammo with me. Actually, I can really stand any of them in a pinch except the 1911 style which eats my hand up.

Ed Brown's is the cream of the crop..

I like the Ed Brown too. The gun seems to sit lower in your hand. I had one fit to a Delta Elite and it was really comfortable.

I have a Kimber and a Les Baer, but the Ed Brown stills feels the nicest to me.

I love the Ed Brown beavertail grip with memory groove. Only a little filing and machine work was done and it sits perfectly well in my Norinco standard .45 in a matter of minutes.
