Had some 1911 grips made

#1 Post by wvfarrier » Mon Apr 16, 2018 5:50 am

I had bought the hobo coins from a fella who does some engraving. The grips were made from Ebony by "A Womans Touch" in Texas. These are my BBQ grips ;-)

These were made by Stoner CNC out of G10.....more of a working grips for the Supergrade.

Man oh man, I think those are about the best looking grips I’ve ever seen! Really, really nice design. Nice gun too.

Very nice design. Not my style, but I can sure see the appeal!

Nice. They blend very well with that pistol.
