Eh Review by Vandikar
It fattens up the grip way too much. Grips on its wider than the rest of the gun. Took um off and tossed in drawer. Save your money. (Posted on 1/11/14)
Good, not great Review by JerseyJim
Bright shiny laser. Really, it punches thru smoke and is quite bright. I'd rather have a green laser though, as sunlight at anything over 15-20 yds is not that effective with the red.
Turns my slinky EMP "girlfriend" into a chunky hausfrau. It's not unworkable and still far better than no laser, but I can't help but think they could have worked out something with those outstanding VZ grips that came with the EMP to give me best of everything. Yeah, I would have paid more.
For reference measured under grip safety to just under trigger guard, the EMP lasergrip is 132mm, about the same circumference as a Glock 23 measured in the same manner.
Final note: I'd not consider a carry weapon without a laser, since we CCWers are responsible for every bullet, that seals the deal for me. I can hit moving targets like never before and shoot accurately from retention position.
One fit note, I had to change from the short screws supplied by Springfield for the G10 grips to the full length 1911 screws. Even then I had to file them down a bit as tightening to full torque caused the magazine to bind. CTC support tried to be helpful, but was unable to resolve this with promise of custom grip to allow short screws to get purchase, but never did, so I had to replace the screws. (Posted on 12/1/13)
Excellent choice Review by SS
Like many things these grips are a compromise. I purchased them to assist my aging eyes with tight shots and out of position shooting. Plus I believe a quick flash of that laser into a darkened part of the house would send even a half wit intruder on their way. On the other hand the CT panels are almost exactly twice the thickness of the stock wooden panels but the grip is dramatically improved. Since I live in Illinois I have not had the opportunity to try to carry this pistol concealed as of yet but I doubt that the new panels would make that much of a difference over the original configuration.
I did have to slightly modify the indent for the opposite side of the magazine release button with a rat tail file and make larger the opening in the dust cover.
All in all I am very pleased with the product. (Posted on 11/6/13)
Way...way.....WAY!!!!! To thick Review by Kyle Guthrie
I mean, holy crap. I paid for um so I'm going to keep um, but man. It's like gong from holding a sleek mini-9mm 1911, to holding a watermelon! Takes the grip width to inline with the thumb safety.
Almost completely destroys feel of gun.
On upside, the increase weight lowers the muzzle flip and the lack of a green laser or wood options like the other masters series grips means I'm not saddled with indecision problems. (Posted on 9/7/13)
