2011 steel grips

Recommended Posts

Looking for opinions on 2011 steel grips.  limcat, pheonix, etc.  What have you used and liked?  Also was it a straight replacement or did it require a lot of fitting?

Check out the grip that lonestar innovations is making. The ergonomics are incredible, it has the right type of grip and is designed in Texas and made from 17-4 stainless. I think it is the best grip on the market. Glenn will help make sure that the fitting is as easy as possible.

I like the evo but I’ve heard some talk lately from gun builders that the lsi grip is the best one out. I haven’t seen one yet. Evo was/is a great product. Cheely is good too but requires a cheely proprietary magwell which a deal breaker for me.

I have used the Classic PT grips, the EVO, and the Cheely E2 all in aggressive texture. Personally I find the best fit for my hands to be the EVO. The Cheely grip is nice and comes with the magwell and mag release, but it is a little smaller and I don't feel like I grip it as well as the EVO. Fitting will vary based on your frame, I have had to spend quite a bit of time fitting all of them I have installed.

I just had a chance to put hands on the LSI outlaw grip and I was very impressed. The double undercut is a nice addition and the quality was top notch. The PT Evo is a great way to go as well. Super grippy and quality is excellent. The price difference isn’t huge but if I were looking to save a few bucks I’d go LSI based on how it felt to me and looked.

Thanks for all the replies.  For those that replaced their plastic grip with steel was it basically a simple swap or was much fitting involved

Unless you're using a grip that has been specifically ordered for your frame dimensions (I believe Lone Star provides this service) fitting a steel grip to a 2011 frame could be very hit/miss.

 

The pic below shows initial trial for installing a PT grip on what was my normal limited pistol.  After checking some measurements it was clear that I would need to remove material from either the grip or the frame.  I wasn't happy about either option, so I tried installing the grip on another 2011 that I had intended to sell.  Guess what...it fit like a glove, no filing needed..

LSI OUTLAW grip is made one off as per the frame dimensions you supply...so that saves the DIY and gunsmith guys fitting time.

I have only used the PT Evo, it didn't fit one frame without some fitting, but went right onto another with no problems. I really like the feel of the evo in my hand. great product, but again the only one I have tried.

that sounds like something to consider.  Got a limcat I am having redone and am adding their steel grip to it.  Unless it is so it fits like a glove think I will talk to lonestar for my DVC 3 gun
