    These may be a good idea though I have never had this happen.

    Interesting.
    I'm still new to 1911 ownership, so I can't say how useful they are, but neat idea, anyway.

    How does that approach help if it is the slide that blows apart?

    Dont get it.

    I guess I just dont get what these are supposed to do? Would a blowout due to a squib cause a blowout in the in the chamber above the grips? Or is there enough blowback into the frame of the gun to blow the grips off?

    I think the idea is to prevent the grips or escaping pressure from injuring the hand. A round fired behind the "squib" would possibly cause the barrel to rupture and the force would exit via the path of least resistance and that would be into the chamber then into the magwell I have to assume. E-mail Marianne (link in my siggy) she is the designer of this and would be happy to answer any questions.

    I wonder how they look mounted. Seems like either you'd see the edge of the protector or there would be a gap between your grip and frame if they recess them. Neither way sounds too good to me. AlumaGrips would be a better option if you're concerned.

    Are Aluma grips strong or would they become aluminum shrapnel? I see your point about the edges showing but you can always contact Marianne and ask...she is one killer custom gunsmith.

    They're hard anodized, but I don't know what kind of aluminum. Call the owner, Chris and ask his opinion. Really nice guy.
