    Go to a place that specializes in or carries a variety of 1911's(especially if they have an indoor range and rental policy) and try out different grips until you find something that really works for you.

    What is your physical build? Height/Weight? I also have big hands and thus need a wider grip, but I carry a double stack USP .45. I am 5'11 and 225(yes I am currently about 25lbs overweight) but even at 200lb I never had concealment problems. Well except in the Southern summer, but then I couldn't conceal any large frame pistol except in my brief case.
