It’s amazing how well they duplicate the 1911 feel.

That’s it.. Nationals. Sometime in the mid to late eighties I called Herrett to ask whether I could get a set of them for the slant grip High Standard Target gun. I was told that they were long discontinued, but that they had found a dusty box on a shelf with a NOS set. I could buy the very last ones left if I wanted. I was never a serious competitor, but enjoyed shooting in a casual Bullseye league using those grips on my 8” barreled “Space Gun”. I miss those days!

The S&W Model 41 and the late High Standards with the “Military” grips mimic the shape and feel of the GI 45. The older HS guns had the more anatomically friendly grip angle that, with the fitted grips, pointed naturally for most people… but “ruined you” for shooting the 45 leg!

I have a pair of those in a drawer where I keep extra grips. They were on a S&W Model 52.
