I have to wear shooting gloves due to long term damage to my hands and wrists. The 85% size grip on the Browning 1911's is just enough too narrow for me with the gloves on that I needed to find a way to make it larger. I love the grips and didn't want to try to find fatter ones. Also, after what I paid for the gun - with its factory grey cerakote and fiber optic sights - I didn't want to spend more money on it. I wear PIG Charlie gloves made especially for women, so it is not a problem of the gloves being loose. they fit "like a glove" LOL... I had an old report binder with plastic that is slightly embossed, making it a bit thicker than the regular ones. SO - I cut grip size pieces of plastic, two for each side, and put them under the wood grips. The screws still worked which was fortunate. Now I have grips that fit my hand. Actually, I did the same thing with my three SIG P238's but had to buy longer screws for those guns. Pictures below. thanks Ranger6!
