Any 1911 grip will have to be modified to fit the 22/45. The question is will the needed modifications interfere with the electronics of the Crimson Trace grips. Take a look at the several grip websites and notice the differences between the 1911 and 22/45 grips. There are probably some posts here and on other forums that talk about just how to modify the grips and there may also be some videos around that do the same. Just make sure the video is for the MK IV 22/45 and not the MK III.

I have a 1911 with a Crimsom Trace laser I bought already fitted with the laser.

I took a look at the Crimson Trace website and they do not list a set of grips for the MK IV 22/45. A set of grips for the 1911 will not fit a 22/45. There are different cutouts on the grips for each pistol. You would have to modify a 1911 grip set to fit the 22/45. The needed mods for the 22/45 may cut into the circuits of the grip. I don't know for sure but you would need to check on that.

I'm worried about modifications to it because of the CT circuit

Take off the grips on your 22/45 and compare the back of the grips to a set of 1911 grips. that will give you an idea of how much would have to be modified and if the mods would interfere with the CT circuits.

Can anyone who has a set of CT 1911 grips post a photo of the backside of the grips to compare?

I guess I am going to have to buy a set of CT grips and see if that works and take a couple of pictures.
