OK, I just got the cheap Lava Grips from CopperGunGrips.com.  Initial impression was not real impressive.  Looked like cheap plastic, did have a very grippy texture though..  Screw holes didn't line up but luckily I had the Torx Screws from the Henning grips that allowed me to mount them.  Even then I had to lift the grip panel off the frame to get the screws to start properly.  Once they were started and screwed to snug I had to force the panels into place.  They snap in with an audible snap.  If you get these be careful.  A few of the reviews say they broke on install.  Look at which way they have to got go and then push gently but firmly.

Now that they're on I think I kind of like these,  as narrow as the Hennings, MUCH more grippy, course texture AND they're only $35 bucks.  I'ld give them a thumbs up.  Few little things to watch on install but over all they worked without getting any fitting tools out.   I'll get some pictures in the day light and post them up as well as putting a few mags through the pistol now that I have the slide stop issue under control.

That sounds like par for the course. In all my trials I have found if they just drop in place you will get movement. I have also had to juggle a panel/screw to get some on. Maybe it's frame differences?
