who likes VZ grips?

I do! I got these Simonich Gunners from VZ's holiday discount. They got way too many variations for the 1911, so I just picked the simplest one. Here it is on my RO. Feel free to post yours

That black on black looks good.

There are several on this page that I would like to have.

They feel fantastic, VZ says they are very aggressive but I would put them at "mild", but that's just me. The super scoop makes it a little easier to push the mag release so I don't have to rotate the gun too much.

VZ Frag grips on my MA American Classic Commander.

Aggressive, which is fine with me.

Wood grips are my favorite by far, but I do like a nice set of VZs.

I too like VZ grips. I bought a set for my 1911 as well as my Hi-Power.

1911 Forums

The 1911's are Double Diamond Black Desert Sand, and the Hi-Power's are Black Pro Slims.

Alien grips, radiation blackout screws, o-rings and new bushings (which don't fit on a Norinco, apparently they're metric), along with a checkered mainspring housing.

1911 Forums

Now I only need to modify the grips, since I bought a Wilson Combat magwell this weekend.

I'm a big fan of VZ grips. I probably have a dozen or more pairs.

As soon as I get a new 1911 I dump the factory grips and put on a set of VZ's (of course, they're "vee zeds" 'round these parts ). Here's my latest--a SIG TTT with Gatorbacks
