Alright, so, at the smallest point, the thickness of the grip is .107", at its thickest, it's .267".

I can also send you a set to look at.
Thanks, DK - Now I have another hot iron in the fire....

Also, thanks for the offer of sending me the grips, but I'll just post a preview
of the RMH tapered version here and see what the response is.

I recently received these grips from Ron Der at RMH Knives (rmhknives.com). It is my own custom design that I sent him. I wanted texture and smooth areas in a grip, with nothing too agressive. The dimpled pattern looks like bubbles - don't know how else to describe it.

Ron was great to work with. We went back and forth a couple of times to sort out the details, and each time he would send me a .jpg picture of the CADD design, with the wood grain and texture rendered to look just like the grips.

It was a fun process to have an idea come together in the final product. And for the price, I am already thinking about the next design...


Thank you, TR...

Tapered Grips

After many requests and much interest, I am submitting a design
for tapered grips for the 1911 pistol.

The 3D pdf file of it below can be manipulated by using the left
mouse-button / drag to rotate, and the mouse-wheel or right
mouse-button / drag to zoom. Right and left mouse-buttons
together / drag will allow you to pan. Also, right-clicking on the
model will allow you to select a number of different viewing options,
as well as some other choices.

Right-clicking to download, then launching the file will usually work
better than trying to view it directly from the browser.

RMH Tapered Grip PDF File

At this point, I could begin producing grips with this geometry now,
but I wanted some user input here on the forum where I know I'll get
the best feedback.

The grip, as submitted, has the same basic "footprint" against the
frame as a standard grip, and, as with my other grips, any
customization can be applied to these such as logos, motifs,
patterns, et cetera, and in any material as well. Also, magwell and
mainspring housing hole variations are possible. I'm not yet sure about
making these available in "thin" or officer's size configuration. Input on
these considerations would be helpful, too.

Feedback staying in this thread would be appreciated, rather than via
PM or eMail, for all to benefit and be a part of the effort. Any individual(s)
who contribute what I feel to be the most thoughtful and useful input
will be part of the "free evaluation-grip gratitude program."

Again, much thanks and appreciation for all those who have been
supporting RMH with their business.

On the leading edge, is it thinner at the top of the grip and thicker at the bottom? Or is that an "optical delusion"?
Currently, the taper is the same height from the top to the bottom.
The perspective in some of the images may make it look otherwise.
If you turn the model on the 3D PDF, you'll see this better.
