I use Wilson's in all my 1911s and the've always been flawless. As to grips, that is one of those personal preference things. Since the front strap is not checkered I added a Pachmyr wrap but there is are a zillion options out there for grips.
I've got my Pro Carry II on my hip right now. It likes Chip McCormick Shooting Star mags just fine. Original Kimber mags...a little iffy. I've got Paper Micarta Grips (VZ Gator Backs) since these seem to be a good mix of grip on my and, and minimal wear on my clothes (and skin).
