    I had a Smith 4516, it was a great gun, not sure why I no longer have it, another one I regret parting with.

    Been pondering a Rock 9mm among others lately. They seem to have risen in price considerable in the last few years.

    Heard folks have pretty good luck with them.

    I've often thought of making some similar to that, just to be unique and different but I see somebody done beat me to it.

    I did make a set where the wood came around the front down near the mag well. Forcing a high hand hold. Felt great. Tough to make and with wood I'm not sure how durable they would be. I made them for somebody here a few years back, can't remember now.
    I started to make myself a set, I'll have to check the drawer and see if I still got them.
    These grips are thick enough through that area to allow inletting to accommodate the latch.

    That set you described making sounds like some Fitz and Pointer made back in the day. I believe both companies made theirs out of plastic.
    KSD Custom grips makes something similar and quite a bit like the grips on my P210.

    Yes I love the older gen Smith's & yes the Rocks are solid built tanks.
    People either love or hate the Rock Islands, yeah prices have gone up a bit with popularity.

    I agree on the 4516 and keep one at the ready under the workbench

    Get a Rock! My 9 has been an excellent gun

    For plinking fun, one of these (or ATI's less expensive equivalent) and +4 followers will do nicely

    I thought about that mag release being inletted after I hit send, no way that would have got by you.
    The grips I described are very much like the 210 only mine were solid and met in the front. They were quite comfortable at least for my size hand.
    I looked this morning and can't find them anywhere, I thought I'd made at least part of them when I did the set for a member so I'd have kind of a pattern. Thought sure I had them but they are hiding good.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to imply those KSD grips are on my gun. I don't have a set of their grips.

    However, I think those grips look similar to the set that came on my SIG P210 (see photo below):

    I think the P210 should be right at home in this thread because it has a bit of 1911 feel to it

    Plus it's one of the most beautiful guns I've ever seen and I never tire of looking at it.
    It fits well in any thread.

    I'm totally on-board with you Colonel. I'm simply loving the P210A so far.
    I let another friend shoot it today. He fired a magazines worth from 15 yards, shooting two handed while standing. If I hadn't watched all 8 rounds hit, I wouldn't have believed him if he had shown me the target. I cut that section out of the cardboard and will stick it on the wall of my garage:

    Yep, 5 rounds through that less than dime size hole in the sticker he was aiming at.
    If you want a higher resolution photo of the 210, there is one here: https://postimg.cc/cr1H0rfh

    Anyway, keeping on with 1911 pics, here's my SR1911 with a short trigger and more agressive grips installed:

    I'll also toss in a shot of my Springfield Armory 1990's Edition (that's the name on the box ):
