: How much have the grips been modified?
: ie - changed for a smaller / larger than usual hand, sanded / routed smooth, deepened fingers, etc?
I modified the palm rest's channels to suit my 92mm (across the knuckles) hand. It goes a bit farther now. The spot where the thumb/index webbing meets the grip has also been deepened so the hand goes farther and deeper in the grip. (Barrel close and low is good for less muzzle flip). Added a bit of epoxy putty to the middle finger part to create more volume. (Long fingers) They were stippled and finished with danish oil. All in all, I feel all the hard work on these has been done but as with any pistol, you'll need to make it fit your hand.
