Which ones did you go with? I'm not sure, but they look a little wider than the stock SR1911 grips. I don't really want them wider. I was thinking of doing the custom ones they offer and maybe go slim, or perhaps get the ones which allow me to add a magwell. Got any pics?

I went with the black, standard model, and I don't find them to be any wider than the stock ones I took off. Since it's a single stack gun to begin with, I didn't see any need to go with the "slim" version. Naturally, that's a personal choice. I don't have any pics, but somebody here posted one with the same configuration.

Question Pachmayr?

Has anyone tried the Pachmayr Rosewood American Legend grips? I used to use Pachmayr's back in my revolver days and loved them.

The picture is from brownells.com



I love the looks of the factory grips, but I think I'd prefer the feel of Pachmayrs. Their looks aren't too bad, either!

My other choice would probably be the Crimson Trace LG-901 if I decide to put laser sights on it.

Anyone had any experience with these on a SR1911? I've seen cautions about fitting standard 1911 grips to Kimbers and Taurus's, but nothing with the SR1911. So, I'm assuming standard 1911 GI grips should fit. Right?

The SR1911 is my first 1911 and I've not even received it yet. Sorry if I'm asking dumb questions.

Thanks.

Question

Those Pachmayrs look pretty good.

I have really come to like the Hogue rubber wrap-around finger grips on my P85 and P90. I got them from shopruger.com. Has anyone fitted any similar Hogue rubber wrap-around finger grips on a SR1911?

I like Hogues and they're on my list to check out before making the decision. I've got a Hogue Handall grip sleeve on my XDm45, which other than having to take off for cleaning, I'm very happy with. They look nice on your P85, too.

The SR1911 is a gun I've lusted over for a very, very long time. I hate to say it, but looks are going to be as important as performance when it comes to goodies for it. The only Hogues I've seen are all black, either rubber or aluminum. And that rosewood on a stainless steel framed 1911, accented by the black rubber - for me - well, that's hard to beat.

I thought I saw a set of Hogues for a 1911 that were wood and rubber similar to the Pachmayrs. But if I wasn't dreaming, I can't find them again.

I think the medallions look good, not so sure I like the wood, but the medallions are cool.

Those are nice looking grips. From the picture they look completely smooth. Don't you find they get slippery? I live in Arizona, so I'm always concerned about sweat.

It would be cool if you could put the Ruger medallions in, but still it looks nice the way it is.

You can see long dug out lines in the wood going North to South (sortta) that probably give it a little grip. They look like mini blood grooves found in swords.

Crimson Trace LG-901

Besides the Pachmayr's, I'm also interested in the new Crimson Trace Rosewood grips. It's the LG-901 and they're brand new - also not released yet. Being new, they're still pricey, but I think the rosewood against the stainless steel is a very nice look.

I've got a CTC LG-448 on my XDm 45 and am extremely pleased with it. I love just making one big old ragged hole in the middle of a target.

But, there's something inside my head that says it's just wrong to put laser sights on a 1911.

I finally locked down an SR1911 and made a deal on it. The one I thought I'd bought fell through when the seller flaked. I've already been exchanging info with the seller, so this time I think I'm actually going to be fondling my new SR1911 in a few days.

Ideally, (though I've not actually shot a 1911 yet) I'm thinking something with some rubber backing in the backstrap area might be nice to cushion the recoil a bit, though I know there's a grip safety to worry about. My XDm's have grip safeties too, though and the Hogue Handall grip sleeves work fine on them.

Still looking...
