1911 grips

1006 3
I really want some sort of grip for the front strap on my Colta Delta.

I have been looking at Pachmayr’s American Legend Series for my are these grips any good? The Pistol came without the original Delta grips, should I try to locate these?

Or would it be worth it to have the front strap checkered?

The Pachmayr grip slightly changes the effective front strap dimensions, but grips of varying thicknesses also change the grip slightly (one of the nice things about 1911s). Many shooters use the Pachmayr grips or apply grip or skateboard tape to their front straps, but I would prefer to have the front strap checkered. I prefer 25lpi or 30 lpi checkering to 20lpi, although 20lpi is grippier. Some shooters prefer stippling, serrations, golf balling, snakeskin, etc.

EGW does nice machine work, including checkering.

I really like the legend grips. They are not ambi cut but they can be cut for the ambi.
