The originals were just too flat and did not fill my palm as much as the Hogues do. Might be something for you to consider after you become familiar with your 4566. Yes, indeed, a really great pick-up.
CONGRATS ON YOUR 4566 FRIEND. IN TERM OF GRIPS, THE FACTORY USED TO SHIP THESE OUT WITH EITHER THE STRAIGHT BACKSTRAP LIKE YOURS, OR THE CURVED ONE. (YES, BACKSTRAP CHOICE DECADES BEFORE IT WAS EVEN A THING LOL) AND FROM TIME TO TIME EITHER KIND MIGHT SURFACE WITH ONLINE VENDORS. ALSO HOGUE HAS A FEW CHOICES IN VARIOUS WOODS OR RUBBER, AS WELL AS KSD GRIPS. PERHAPS OTHERS TOO, THAT I AM UNAWARE OF THEM.
