I was surprised that I didn't have to do any cutting for the ambi safety. The screws are the original ones. The grips are a little thicker than the factory one but I really like them. The factory grips were actually fairly thin. The change took me all of 2 minutes. I am am now TOTALLY happy with my 1911. The grips are Chip McCormack rosewood from Midway. ($37)
Hey Guys, I think this thread has moved a bit from the original posters intent, partially due to me bringing up Alumagrips. I am going to move the thread to our 1911 Peripherals sub forum where we can continue to discuss this topic. Thanks for all of your input.
