I received these LOK 1911 grips after discovering the company while searching for grips on Amazon. These grips are great. LOK has definitely done their homework. LOK Grips is a new company that has ventured into the grip manufacturing world. They offer a variety of G10 grips for 1911's, Beretta 92's, Ruger 22/45's, CZ-75's, and Sig 238 and 938's. Various textures and color combinations are offered as well.
The grips I chose were the "Spec Ops" in an orange/black color combo. The Spec Ops have a golf ball texture on the front of the grips panels, and slanted ridges on the back. This design gave me a good grip on the gun and excellent recoil management. I originally thought that these grips might be too aggressive, but they are very comfortable to shoot with. My hands were not any worse for wear after shooting with the LOK Spec Ops grips.
LOK offers a number of different options for the grips. After you have selected the style and texture, you can select ambi-safety cuts, style of bottom cut, and magazine release cuts. Since I chose 1911 grips, I opted for a magwell bottom cut, a magazine relief cut, and an ambi-safety cut. I noticed that with the magwell cut, LOK also has relief cuts, on the back side of the grip, for the main spring housing pin. This shows how much quality they put into the manufacturing process.
I am very pleased with these grips. They are attractive, functional, and less expensive than other G10 grips on the market. They are a very high quality grip at decent price.
