I specialize in building the finest custom grips for the 1911 Colt and the 1911 true clone pistols, both full and compact models.  Whether it be Colt, Kimber, Smith & Wesson, Springfield, Wilson Combat, Les Baer, Rock River Arms, Rock Island Arms or any other true clone of the original M1911  .45 caliber pistol.  I build custom grips by hand, no automation. 

I offer personalization by laser engraving, inlays, checkering or texture work.  I am dedicated to building for you the finest pair of grips that can be had.  I use a variety of woods including many exotic woods.  See my page "Woods We Use".  You choose the wood, I build your grips.  Or, you may send me your own wood and I will build your grips from it. 


Keep in mind what you see does not have to be what you get.  I will customize any pair of grips on my site to suit most of your needs. Whether you would like the mainspring housing pin exposed, you want the bottoms beveled, or you want slim line grips, I can do it for you.  If you have special requests, please email me or use the “Contact” page. 


Please understand that many of the burl woods I use have natural checks, cracks and voids that are NOT defects but are common characteristics of the wood and have been corrected or repaired.  I try to capture the exact likeness of the grips, however, pictures may be lighter or darker  than actual appearance of the grips.
