Got my new thin grips - hope they help

They are the same style as the old ones, so no big change in appearance Not much in the way of selection for round butts out there yet so I'm limited to what I can get, especially thin style Might have to go custom at some point and wouldn't that be a shame

I switched out the bushings to Challis, which are super nice and easy to work with, btw (thanks for the recommendation. I think it was SnowTao). Their bushing tool made it super easy to change out the old bushings. Brilliant design and I wish I'd been the one to think of it.

The feel is a lot better to me and best of all, I can really get my finger on the trigger so I am hoping this helps me with my shooting to the left issues. I know I still need to work on my flinch, but this will hopefully be a start in the right direction. I've been doing a lot of dry firing, but I don't flinch, ever, when dry firing, so I don't know how much help it actually is. I'm trying to focus on trigger pull when I do dry fire, so I can get a better feel of when it fires and how it feels to do it slowly and controlled.

Guess I'll find out this weekend when we hit the range.

Yes, I will take any excuse to show off my firearm again at this point, she's my Precioussssss

Once I put them on, my husband picked up the gun in his bear paws and said, "Ick." LOL

Not sure if these from Altamont grips are thin. I like wood and have bought a lot of grips from this company buy with no worries.
Also inexpensive but well made IMO.
