    Not sure what to say

    I guess I'm more the traditionalist? Kingwood looks nice but hey, to each their own and the nice things about grips is how easy it is to change them from time to time!

    Good looking gun but the grips are certainly nowhere near my preference.....

    Pimptastic? Or blingtastic? LOL!

    Haha - what the heck - grips are grips from a functional standpoint and they should feel right regardless of color. I must be real old (I am) but black or black still suits me fine! Boring I know

    Phil,
    Purple "ain't" my first choice but it looks fine. The RIA is a fine basic 1911.
    Enjoy it.

    Actually they look blue to me! RI's are very basic but a reliable 1911 style gun.

    To each there own, that's why there are more than 1 hand gun makers, grip makers, holster makers.................etc,etc.

    I doubt that I would put them on this 1911, but I'm curious, where did you get those Punisher grips? They look awesome.

    A fellow on eBay. They're great grips -- thick, with good texture for traction, but slim across the top.

    Hey Phil, in one of your pictures, (the second set), the frontstrap seems to have been machined, is this the case or is it some kind of wrapping? Just curious.

    Thanks
