My new Hogue grips got here today. If you haven't ordered direct from Hogue in the past, I highly recommend that you do so. I ordered these on the 17th and they were in my mailbox -- from California -- on the 19th. The only problem I had (apart from finding my hex keys) was that the counterbores on the new grips had some rubber that had flowed over in to them, so I had to scrape that out with a knife before I could get them on. I also had to scrape some old red Loctite off the screws. They feel absolutely great... like a dream. The gun settles into a good firing position immediately as soon as you grip it. Another interesting note, when I took the original grips off I noticed I could see the whole firing mechanism, so I played around a little and I now feel completely comfortable about dropping the hammer on a full chamber with the decocker. I knew it was safe, but now that I've seen it myself (the firing pin is unable to move forward unless you pull the trigger back) I'm more comfortable in doing so.
