I want to upgrade the grips on my Springfield Mil-Spec from plastic to wood. Which ones should I get?

I put a pair of smooth zebrawood grips on my milspec. Looks real nice with the contrast. Got them at gunbroker.com. Do a search there.

I'll post the guy's name when I find it.

Best, -Coop

Is there an advantage (or disadvantage) to smooth vs. checkered?

I guess this post makes me a 1911 addict!

I've always preferred smooth grips, since I favor using some kind of pattern on the frontstrap and MSH (checkering, stippling, skateboard tape...etc) to give you a good grip on the pistol. The smooth grip will be easier on your hand and allow for easier adjustments on your grip of the gun.

Of course this is a very subjective matter. See if you can try both and see which one you like.

Do some shopping. This is one area where personal preference should definitely take a front seat. This is an item anyone can change, and selections should be based on what feels good to you, how they feel when shooting, and best of all "do you like how your gun looks?". This is a fun area, and should reflect your preference and taste.
