4490 36
After Looking at gun Porn since I was a kid...I always noticed that There were a lot of colts with aftermarket grips...Bone..Wood..Pachmeyer...Engraved..Etc...Etc..And I was wonderig if anyone put different grips on there Kimbers...And post a picture if possible(Yep I still Like Gun Porn!) I've been looking at the Alumagrips Tacticals..They look pretty good...Im just not to sure if I would like metal grips.Besides I like my stock grips just fine.I did buy some hogue wraparounds..But after shooting a box with them on..I removed them.I didnt like the feel..or the look on my Kimber.

I took the cheap route and bought some Pachmeyer American Legends on my Custom defender II. And I love them. Course I liked the looks of the rosewood grips on there I didn't like the checkering pattern though. these are smoothe. I'm Not sure what I'm going to get for my next kimber yet. (got a TLE/RL on layway :biglaugh: )

Wow!

Wowwee! Those look Great...All of 'em...But Shhheesh,BrassBalls..The Mammoth Tooth Look FANTASTIC on that CDP! Great grips and picture,NaturalSelector..I like the Gothic theme with the grips and the coffin case...Nice! I think ill get alumagrip tacticals for the TLE/RL...and I wonder how Ebony would hold up as grips...I think maybe CPTBeaker inspired me to try to make some for my Pro Carry( I hope I can do half as good)..Wish i could do checkering...That with a french border would be great in madagascar ebony.Ill post a picture on here as soon as the alumagrips come in.

Here's a pic of my Alumagrips on my Kimber Custom Target. They were custom laser engraved for me. I like 'em. :rock: They were done for me by www.gungrips.net
Sorry for crappy pics. Best I can do with a crappy camera. ;)

I just ordered a set of the new Springfield grip tape ambi-magwell grips they are now installing on their new 1911 TRP w/rail model PC 9105L.
I should have them today or tomorrow and I'm installing them on my GC II Stainless.

Here's a link to a pix and I'll post a report on this thread later this week after I've had a chance to use them in a steel challenge match this Saturday.

Does anybody NOT Put Aftermarket Grips on Their Kimber ?

I have Ahrends full-checkered Tulipwood on my Stainless target, and Ahrends full-checkered Cordia on my SLE. (Guess I like Ahrends full-checkered.)

Oops my pictures are on the other pc...
