    My old model 41 decided to throw me a curve ball and presented me with a broken grip screw. Ok, I might have had something to do with it…. Anyway, I ordered a new pair from “B” for $30.00 and when they arrived, they were not even close. Sent them back and did some more digging. Dave Corbin in...

    Hi, I just installed a Stan Chen SI Magwell on my 45 ACP Vigil. I reinstalled the factory Shadow grips, but I am looking for magwell grips to replace the original grips. In the installation video for the magwell, Stan praised VZgrips. I have no problem with these, but I am an old geezer, so...

    I know the law has changed to make selling ivory illegal. I am asking this question in a public forum to indicate I have ZERO intention of breaking the law or trying to get a grip maker into trouble. I have some legally obtained (imported lawfully in 1986 from working in Saudi Arabia)...

    Nice alternative to ivory - but becoming very, very hard to find anyone working with premium stock. If anyone knows - please post as I’d like to have some made. Thanks.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction of a reputable company who makes a good, thin, wood gun grip? I've recently bought a Kimber 1911 Custom Nightstar, (my first gun purchase, ever). The wooden grips that Kimber installed are beautiful, but my hands are a bit on the smaller side, so I'm...

    Hi all, new to the 1911 world. I just purchased a RIA Tac Ultra 9mm FS HC and was wondering what aftermarket grip options look like. I am aware that most 1911 grips do not seem to fit. Ideally the grips have decent bite as I do a bit of competition shooting. Also red and black grips would be...

    Does anyone here have any experience with Wood Caliber 1911 grips? They have a set of Desert Ironwood grips with skip checkering that are beautiful in the photo. They will even put your choice of Colt or Wilson Combat medallions in them. This set is just $115. That's the best price I've seen for...

    After watching Longmire on Netflix, I looked at getting some stag grips for a 1981 Colt 1911 blued Gov't Model. Man, are they expensive! I ended up ordering some inexpensive imitation stag grips ($30) just to see if I will really like them. Every place I looked it was between $170 and $300 for...
