Optional note:
Are you sending a tracing?:
YES! I want to assure proper size/shape. Tombstone is responsible for fit to tracing. Tracing will show hole pattern. **************************************
NO. I will be responsible if I choose the wrong size grip. I will measure my gun and compare to the listed specs. If I order a grip that is the wrong size or shape, I agree that it is NOT returnable. *****************************************************
I already mailed a tracing BEFORE I placed this order.
These grips are made larger in height and width than the standard factory grip, so you can leave the bottom flat or carve finger grooves, etc., to suit yourself. They may fit many other brands that use grips similar to the 1911, but you will need to check the dimensions or send a tracing to make sure. I have no way to know if these fit some specific model unless it is exactly like a 1911 colt, but since you have the gun, you can measure it. Grip Back

They can be used "as is" with minimal fitting, or can be the start of a scrimshaw or carving project. Also, some particular models of newer 1911-style pistols can use a larger (wider, longer) grip, and even the originals may benefit from covering the edges of pitted or worn areas that were exposed with the original grips.

Grip specs:
  • Overall grip height through center: 4.25 inches
  • Width of base not including notch: 1.4 inches
  • Width through bottom screw hole: 1.6 inches
  • Spacing from bottom screw hole to front edge: .85 inches
  • Spacing from top screw hole to front edge: .65 inches
  • Spacing between screw holes: 3.02 inches
  • Distance from top edge to top screw hole center: 0.6 inches
Note: both panels are similar size and shape, so you can use them with the "ambi" left and right hand safety. You may need to route or sand the top to allow for various safety levers, etc., but there is plenty of room to do so.

Dave Corbin Please Note: I make all the grips by hand and receive so many orders that custom made grip delivery takes an average 45-60 days.
Stock items (medallions, screws, specials) usually ship within 10 days.
I can't promise a specific ship date, as it will vary with circumstances.
If you can't wait, please don't order! I'm working as fast as possible.

Be SURE to read the TERMS of SALE page, so you KNOW what you are getting.

Always compare listed measurements OR send a tracing of original grip or gun frame.
Do NOT order just by description, since the same model and make can vary in actual size and shape of grip frame! Do NOT send your original grips or gun!
