I had always preferred removing wood to get a fit, thus keeping the grips clean looking visually appealing. As I aged I got a bit of arthritis in my knuckles and they swelled. I took a Dremel tool to my grips to remove some of the wood and pressure on my swollen joints. It worked but I went too far, so I ordered a new grip a couple of sized larger than I normally use. Well after filling the big grips with epoxy I ended up with the most comfortable and best fitting grip I ever owned, and while I hate the way they look, I wish I had discovered the ease of epoxy filling years ago.
I see this big grip with the palm shelf elevated to a high position, commonly even non-adjustable like this one is, there must be a reason; and you can bet it is for extra support, not comfort!

I agree that it does not look legit.

This pic (below) shows what the legit grip and wrist support ought to look like, despite the heavy customization. Source: https://youtu.be/7IXdx13v4mo?t=22m52s



That pistol is not gripped in the firing position, therefore is irrelevant. IMHO.

It can be later seen in the vid raised and shot without any obvious difference in the way the shooter's hand holds it, which is the correct one as per ISSF rules, positioning the palm so as to hold the grip without any wrist support. That's the whole point.

As I stated that picture is of a pistol not in the firing position and is therefore irrelevant. That is the point.

What is the deal with those huge grips?
Are those custom made for the shooter?
Does any pistol manufacturer offer them?

If you are talking about this one:

It's not a large grip. It's a shooter with very small hands. It's on a Morini, and the grip is extended well below the hand to accommodate the electronics. From the fingernails & the stickers, I'm guessing the shooter is a small Asian woman.

The shooter is Jeehae Jung from South Korea and all her grips are similarly modified to support the shooting hand's wrist.
