I have an odd request for 1911 grips. I would like advice on a company that makes custom 1911 grips that would work on a Springfield GI. The odd part is I want them to say "Ezekiel 25:17" on them. I was thinking black with that written or engraved some how in silver. Any ideas to get this order filled?

"The path of the righteous man is beset on all side by the iniquites of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men..."

The quote in the movie isn't exactly what appears in the Bible. But it sure is a cool line for a hitman to read off before blowing someone away.

OK, gotta ask: What does that verse say and why do you want it on your 1911??:confused:

Ezekiel 25:17

"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides
by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherd the weak through the valley of darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper
and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."

Alumagrips only allow three letters on their grips. Need the whole thing on there. "Ezekial 25:17"

Alumagrips only allow three letters on their gripsThey allow you to submit art work to be transposed on the grip.

Write out the words in the font that you want and submit it as artwork

It could be engraved on a metal plate and then have the plate inletted into the grips, or scrimshawed on ivory (real or otherwise). I suggest you take it up with:

The Altamont Co.
901 N. Church St.
Thomasboro, IL. 61878
(800) 626-5774

They specialize in the kind of stocks you want, and do a lot of custom work for the major handgun makers.

Pulp Fiction. Cool flick.

Why not have it engraved on the slide? :confused:

Because I like the movie, but if I ever get rid of the gun the next guy or girl might not.

You could also just buy the Alumagrips and take them to an engraver.

I'm sure these folks would make an outstanding set of grips for you. . .

Boone Trading Company (http://www.boonetrading.com/Pg14.html#CustScrim)

I'm going to ask them about a pair made from black buffalo horn for my 9-11-01 Detonics.

You aren't reading or understanding the info on their site. You can submit your own custom *.jpg file. The 3 letters is only if you want them to put your initials on the grips.

Found a company that will do white pearlite grips with black image on them. www.gungrips.net like someone one here suggested, and that's who Alumagrips directed me towards. The orginal grips in the movie were pearl, so I thought this would be a nice touch. $46.00+$5.00 S&H for them. Any ideas for a good setup and design?

Neat idea, just be aware that Tarantino took some liberties with the verse:

25:17 I will carry out great vengeance on them and punish them in my wrath. Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I take vengeance on them.'

post some pics when you get them.
