    Let me clear this up....

    Went to the gun show today. I'm waiting on a pair of custom Alumagrips, but in the meantime I ran across these at a really good price and had to dive on it:





    With a mag inserted:



    They're actually comfortable. I took it to the range like this today.

    I have always wanted the grips/mag from the movie romeo and juliet. (the goofy modern one) It had a clear grip like yours and clear mags as well. You could see the bullets through the grip. Very cool though.

    During WWII, soldiers used to take airplane canopy glass and carve clear grips for the M1911A1, then put a picture of their sweetheart back home under it for a really neat effect.

    Here's an original:

    If you do the picture thing you could make them look different every week if you wanted to. Very cool.

    I'm thinking about printing some graphics to put under them, but for the first time in a while, I'm stumped for ideas.

    A truly different looking grip for a 1911.

    I should have asked him that. Since my ticket is good for both days, I'll try to find time to go again tomorrow and try to get some info.

    I've seen a few forum discussions about the Romeo and Juliet guns and here's something I don't understand: why no clear magazines? The spring and follower would still be metal, of course. Glock mags are plastic if I remember correctly, so I see no reason why a mag body can't be clear plastic.
