SR1911 Grip Question

I'm hoping someone has had the same problem and was able to solve it. I recently purchased a SR1911 CMD and also picked a set of after market Ahrends grip panels for it. Unfortunately, when I went to take the factory grips off I wasn't able to. Although they appear to use allen screws on the grips, there was no grip faces for the wrench to get a grip on.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance....

Rogue

I'm guess they're TORX and not allen. That would be the only other choice if they're not slotted standard screw.

I've seen an SR1911 but I don't remember what the grip screws were.

The grip screws on my full size SR1911 are 3/32 allen.

My SR 1911 grip screws come off with a standard 3/32 allen wrench. It's hard to see the hexagon because of the bluing. I put on a set of aftermarket grips with no problems. Unless they switched to torx, but I would have no problem with that as I have all the common size torx bits. If you work on firearms one of the best investments is a quality screwdriver set with quality interchangeable bits.

Welcome from Australia mate.
Glad to have you on board, nice folk here and lots of good info.
What type of key (allen, or otherwise) was provided with your CMD?

If a 3/32" hex doesn't fit it's a Torx.

I just picked up my SR 1911 and I just looked at mine and the grips us a 3/32 allen wrench. I was able to remove mine today.

Good luck.

That's interesting, so Ruger is mixing them up? Anybody have one with Allen on one side and Torx on the other?
