    So I think I've finally convinced my girlfriend to join me at the range. However, there's a little catch.

    So, does anyone know where I might be able to find pink or purple grips for my 1911? They don't have to be nice, so micarta or acrylic works fine. I did some googling but it seems that my google-fu is weak for I found none.

    They have some pretty funky stuff under the exotics column.

    Got my wife a pair of the black pearlite for her Kimber Ultra CDPII.

    They are some sort of acrylic fiber. Looks good.

    The 2rco site looks interesting (also awful, but that's the layout and not the product). I don't know about anything more expensive as the pistol will be wearing the double-diamond walnut grips on it already for most of its life. Though I will admit that those Wicked grips look amazing... if only, if only.

    Yeah, they are expensive. I mostly keep posting the link to see if anyone on THR is fabulously wealthy.:D

    Guy Hogue offers many of their grips in the exotic hardwood
    Tulipwood - of course every piece of wood is different but
    it is said to generally go from medium to pink tones.

    The S&W 617 I have has Hogue grips in Coco Bolo
    wood, - it goes from black grain to sort of a California
    Coral, also has the white spacer for a red/black ( steamed
    cherry wood? ) buttcap.

    I have the uncheckered Hogue Rosewood grips on my
    1911 as well as what Hogue calls Ebony w/palm swell - they're
    a synthetic of some sort Black and could be painted any
    color blah, yah want I guess.

    I like the exotic hardwoods.

    I could certainly give it a shot...... I haven't backed down from a challenge yet :D I could get my hands on some woods that are naturally the color that your SO is looking for, or could look into other materials (and mine aren't $145 a set :cool:)

    I just now noticed this thread.

    I agree the site sucks -I did it myself when I got sick of Ebay.

    Our grips are Great!
