Colt 1911 and autos based on the design, including short grip models.

1911 full size Colt There are almost unlimited brands and models of autoloading pistols based on John Browning's famous 1911 Colt design. I can't list them all, since there are more than I could possibly know about, and more built every week it seems.

But YOU can tell if your gun takes a standard 1911 full size grip, or a compact 1911 short grip, or some customized version that is not compatible with the standard size grip.

Here is how:
  1. Measure the distance between the centers of the grip screws.

  2. If the distance is 3.075 inches (3-1/16 inch, aprox), with two 1/4-inch diameter stud recesses on the back and .280-diameter screw head recess on the front, and the over-all height of the grip is about 4 inches, then you have a full size 1911 pistol regardless of the brand. Any of the standard or full-sized 1911 grips should work.

    (You might have to relieve a small area on the back of the right grip if you have an ambi-dextrous safety, but this is easy to do. You might also have to sand a little on the top of the left grip to clear the safety on that side, if it is non-mil-spec. Also easy work of a few minutes.)

  3. If the distance between screw hole centers is 2-5/8 inch (2.625-in), and 3-5/8 inch (3.625-in) or less is total grip height, then guess what? --your gun IS NOT a standard full size 1911! It would probably work fine with the COMPACT 1911 grips having that same hole spacing.

  4. If the distance between screw hole centers is something else, of course there is no way that either the full size or the standard compact 1911 grips would fit it. Check to see if another specialized size grip might have the same spacing and measure the height, compare to the listings, and make sure what you have and what you are ordering for it.
For example, people sometimes order 1911 grips for a LLama or a Star or a Ballester-Molina pistol because these producers have made guns that are fairly close copies of 1911's -- except, the grip frame is not the same and doesn't take the same grips as a 1911. Again, easy to tell: just measure and compare!

If you have a Ballester-Molina, please leave this category and click on the Ballester-Molina category instead! The 1911 grips won't fit your gun!

If you have a Star or Llama that looks like a 1911, hmmm... maybe so, maybe not. Compare the grip hole spacing VERY carefully, and check to see if the grips mount with the standard Colt-style 1/4-inch diameter studs or not. Some models of Spanish copies of the 1911 use an entirely different method of mounting, such as directly screwing into the frame into a tapped hole, and the screw holes in the grips might be a different diameter. It's up to you to determine what you are holding in your hand, as far as what your gun might be and what grips it might take. I can't see it from here, or take the grips off and look at the frame, or measure the distance between the screw hole centers. You can.

Para Ordnance makes some nice pistols that look a lot like compact 1911's. The grips are not the same and even the compact 1911 version grips don't fit. Different hole spacing. Check it out before you order...save yourself the cost of re-shipping. Just takes a few minutes, time well spent!
