I like the VZ too, but at almost $80 (w/ shipping) it's a bit much for grips IMHO.

The Coolhand are nice, but can I get them in plain black? (sent coolhand a email on this.) I know at some point my shirt will ride up and having high contrast doesn't seem smart.

I still like the Springfield better...Sig is a close second tho.

Still looking, but headed to the range today to turn some dollar bills into loud noises.

Here is a pick of my Ultra.
I believe it was one of the last made. Tu-Tone in .45acp with night sights.
I'm looking for a matching 9mm....one of these days I'll run across one.

I've had a couple of different Colt's and Springfields in the compact frame and out of all of them this SIG has remained with me.

These are Alumna-Grip slim grips.

Went out to the range yesterday. Setup targets at 7yds, using the Springfield compact, the Sig ultra and a Springfield A1. Doing my best to concentrate on the perfect sight picture while gently squeezing off a round did not give very good results.

Toward the end of the session I switched my method to bringing the sights up to the target and squeezing one off as the sights pass the target. Much faster and Much better results.

Still, the practice I've been doing w/ the Springfield compact shows. While the full size A1 had better results, I can't really carry something so massive and heavy. The Springfield compact consistently out performed the Sig, not by a lot, but it definitely was better. If I could figure out why the Compact needs to have the target above the sight picture instead of on it I'd be much happier.

Brought them home and gave them a good cleaning - first time for the Sig. Both the Compact and the Ultra are a pain in the butt to get the guide rod out. What's the trick to doing this and not sending some part of the gun flying across the room?

I have the Sig Ultra in both 9mm and 45. Great little guns. I traded the stock grips on mine for a Sig branded set with a magwell. They are black, made of G10 material and are a bit more grippy than the ones that came on mine. They are just slightly longer which could affect concealment. The new ones also came with a new matching main spring housing. You have to take the spring out of the original and transfer it to the new housing. If you have not done that before it can be tricky the first time.

These grips are still available on CDNN and, at a higher price, on ebay. On the CDNN website they are now for sale at a clearance price of $29.95. Very low price for what has been, at least for me, a quality product. I am sure when Sig sold them directly they were closer to $100.

Enjoy your new 1911.

I have no problem with shooting my Sig Ultra 45 Tribal at speed in IDPA BUG. Perhaps your grip (hands, not pistol stocks) needs some work?

Thanks for the info. IDPA looks pretty interesting. I'm going to try this uspsa match a week from Saturday. hawkeyegunclub (North Carolina)
Their website isn't very useful, but I PM'd the owner on FB and we chatted a bit about it. He was very informative.
There's an IDPA club about the same distance (in the opposite direction) I'll try if the hawkeye club isn't to my liking.

Got the new grips today. I LIKE them!

Now I just need to decide if I'm putting the Pearce finger grooves on it like all my other ones.
