About

It started out of necessity

I grew up watching my Dad make anything and everything. So when I couldn't find grips for my left hand, I decided to make them myself. Friends asked where I found the grips and really didn't believe me when I told them I made them myself. I got asked if I could make some for them and that's what started my business. I've been making them for the past 10 years.

Frequently asked questions
Do 1911 grips come with an ambi cut?

No, I do not put an ambi cut in the grips unless it is requested by the customer. There is no additional charge.
Some guns have an ambidextrous safety that require a notch cut out of the right grip where the arm of the ambidextrous safety's arm is held on by the grip. Some models that have an ambidextrous safety don't require the cut out especially newer Kimber models. Check the back of the right grip to see if it has the cut out in it to determine if you need an ambi safety notch cut of your new grips.

Care instructions

The grips are extremely easy to care for. Just please remove the grips before cleaning your gun with any solvents. The solvent can get in the pores of the grips and discolor them. It is also a good practice to lightly oil under any grips to prevent rusting.
To care for your Ivory and Bone grips I use Renaissance wax. It's made for antiques and will protect the grips, also good for your gun.

Difference between full size 1911 grips and officer's model 1911 grips

Measuring the right hand grip in the center from top to bottom - A full size 1911 grip is approx. 4 1/8" long. An officer's model grip is approx. 3 3/4" long. We use the measurement of the right hand grip due to the fact that the left hand grips vary due to the cut out at the top of the grip.

Difference between standard bushings and thin line bushings

A standard bushing measures approx. 3/16" off of the frame. A thin line bushing measures approx. 1/16" off of the frame.

Do you use stock photos?

No stock photos are used. The picture of the grips you see are the ones that you will receive. Each pair of grips has an item number in the listing so we know exactly which pair of grips were ordered. They can look similar but no two pairs are exactly the same.
