Overlay Grips for 22/45 - does Anyone Make them Besides Tech-custom?

I have the model with the fixed grips and i'd like to make them wider. The hogue rubber ones are ugly so I'd prefer something else. I have tried emailing tech-custom.com but it just rejects the email.

Does anyone else make these kind of overlay grips? I don;t want to take a dremel to a perfectly good pistol, I'd leave it how it is first...or is my only option the black rubber roll on from hogue or pachmayr? And which one do i use?

Sorry,don't know of any.I have read on rimfire central that Tech Cust/Dominic can be difficult to deal with,however I had no problem getting mine.I would keep trying,maybe he's sick or on vacation or something.As far as the slipons,they were a waste of money for me.Tried the Pachmyer first and they tore around the 3rd time I went to put them back on after cleaning.Houge next,don't remember the size but it said for Mark III 22/45 on the back of the package,These were too loose and would slip down while shooting/handling and make it diffuclt to get a mag seated.I have access to a mill and the knowledge to use it but like you decided not to do the grip mod yet.Right now I am satisfied with the Tech Customs panels.

Dominic sent me grip panels, magazine base plates and a prototype slip on grip for my 10110. They were absolute crap and he would charge me for them, not even shipping. Dominic was dificult to work with and very elusive.
I ended up buying the 10140 also.

I am also looking for an overlay type grip but prefer not to deal with this guy either, I've heard from too many people that he can be a real dillhole.

My last choice would be to grind off the frame sides, I am very nervous about making major mods like that where there is a chance of ruining the piece. Is there anyone out there offering that service?
