yes a little, the most increase is across the back of the grip which has a small increase in width but that small increase is a huge help in taming recoil.

Update:
Since my initial review I have carried this setup quite a bit more and I stil think this setup is better than sliced bread. The grips have help up extremly well, no warping, cracking or discoloration and still tames recoil well. And the holster has held up very well also. It has broken in nicely and yet still grips the gun quite well. The leathers finish has held up pretty well to sweat, which happens kinda often here in Wyoming in the summer. And the rig disappears under a T shirt or lightweight short sleeved button down.
All in all, between the V05 grips of PolishIron's and the Outbags IWB holster I have to say I have a pretty solid carry combo.

P-64's on its way, along with Hammer and recoil springs. Just need to order this holster and a belt!

Ketchman,

Is there a brand of CC belt you'd recommend?

Not specifically just make sure it is plenty stiff, like double thick cowhide or has a stiffener in it. Also make sure it is wide enough, a stiff belt that is only 1" wide will not have enough surface to distribute weight and tension over to be comfortable. Mine is extra thick cowhide and is 1 1/2" thick and sometimes with my heaviest EDC's that is not wide enough to be comfortable for long long periods. Make sure the buckle is sturdy as it will have to endure quite a bit of stress. The flexible fabric military belts are not good enough in my opinion unless they have been specially stiffened with plastic or steel inserts to make them stiff enough. But as far as a specific type, no, carry belts are as person specific as holster type and carry location preference, it is different for everyone. And you will go through a few before you find what works for you. Try looking at holster makers websites and get some ideas and sometimes you can find some at a gunshow where you can check them out before you buy. Don't depend on a Walmart or Costco belt.
I hope this helps.
