    1911 Grips

    I'm looking to upgrade the grips on my Colt 1911. I've see some really nice ones on here but have no idea where they came from. Any ideas?

    This guy made a set of grips for me. They aren't everyone's cup of tea but the workmanship is excellent. The wood is engraved, then the gold leaf is hammered into the engraving and the whole thing is coated with clear lacquer. The factory is in Istanbul, Turkey.

    Wood grips? Carbon Fiber? Aluminum? Micarta?

    There are hundreds of 1911 grip makers out there. It all depends on what your looking for. Try a google search for 1911 grips. I'm sure you'll get enough hits to keep you busy for several days.

    In my opinion Esmeralda and Sarge make some of the most beautiful 1911 grips money can buy

    Although not well known warrior grips are nice. I've handled them and they are nice. I will be buying some soon. I would go for the tamer ones. They have some that brag about making you bleed. Lol. They are made by local cops in Arkansas

    To gain ideas, you might want to input "1911 grips" in Ebay or GunBroker and see what's being offered. It's a dizzying assortment.

    These are my personal choice, http://raascogrips.com/. They are synthetic but look and feel like wood. Good prices as well. Like others have said, the possibilities of makers and types feel endless. Good luck!

    I have Pachmar grips and while they feel pretty good at first, the rubber moves around too much to my liking.

    Ditto. I put Pac's on it in the early 80's and now I'm ready to dress her up a bit!

    I just got a set of those 2nd hand, so far I really like them.





    But for what it's worth, I think VZ Grips are by far my favorite.










    Ahrends
    and Spegels are pretty nice too.


    And of course there's.....


    WICKED GRIPS! which really are pretty wicked.
