Over all I am very happy that with the grips . The fit is excellent in my opinion requiring no filing or modifications of anytype .
They do swell the width of the grip area and have a contour at the edges that make the grip feel less blocky .
I wouldn't say they are better than my hogue grip sleeve that I have installed on my silver model as I feel It does offer a surer and firmer grip .
But I find myself thinking that the wood grips would be better for someone thinking of using the HP25 as a pocket carry,conceal carry , etc or if you're like me and just like how they look .
