    Long story short, I need a really cool set of grips for a stainless 1911 Compact. It's to be a special anniversary gift from my wife to me. (I'll act surprised!)

    No more than $150

    I'm aware of Esmeralda and have submitted that site to the wife, but I'm having trouble finding anything else that's up the the task of looking great while being practical grips.

    I tried to locate Tony Rist, but all the links to his site come up dead.

    I was looking for the same sort of thing and asked Esmeralda if she could make me a set that combined some aspects of her grips with custom inscriptions. Here is the result...



    Larry makes awesome grips for shooting, and I have three sets, butif you want something customized/unique/etc look into asking a grip maker to do something personal for you. The mosaic checkering on these makes for a good gripping surface, too.

    See post #3, you won't regret it! Post #6 links to a guy who accepted money from numerous would-be buyers and left them high and dry.

    G27RR, how long did it take Esmeralda to get those grips done?

    I believe it was right at four weeks and didn't cost much more than most of the grips on her site.

    They make many many different "stock" grips, or you can send them a custom design and they can get it in a grip for you. I haven't used their 1911 grips, but have used their grips on various paintball markers and the fit and finish is always fantastic.

    There's also a thread at the 1911Forum specifically for gripmakers to showcase their work.

    That's the one I posted above Olympus, I really enjoyed your work as well. Might have to have a look around...; - )

    Alumagrips are thin, light, tough, and I think you can get a custom engraving on them.
