Grip size confusion

With the help of you folks I bought a Pro Carry 2. Love it. I ordered a mag from Wilson Combat. They list the Pro series under Full Size 1911's and a seven round mag was available. I'm looking at VZ grips and they say I have a compact because the grip screws are 2.77 inches apart (approx 2 11/16"). Is it a full size or compact? I shall await a knowledgeable answer while I slowly go insane.

If you have a Pro Carry II then the grip is full size.
