So I went out a few months ago and put a set of MagPul grips on my Commander that are similar in countour as these from Hunteran on his Springfield.

All I can say is that after a lifetime of shooting my Commander with GI profile grips (other than a set of Pachmeyers with a wrap-around-the-front checkered strap which I used for 20 years) I'm really, really not diggin' the scooped out area that's there to "facilitate rapid mag changes."

Holy Mother of God, talk about one little thing totally dicking up your grip. I mean, for me it's a fundamental change that I'm not going to be able to make. I'll try another few hundred rounds out if it when I hit the range end of the month, but I'm also going to be bringing my toolbox.

Has anybody else had similar reactions to that big scalloped out section?
