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.
Standard full size Colt 1911 frame thumbrest grips.

The hole spacing is 3-1/16 inches center to center. The stud holes on the back fit over 1/4-inch OD mounting studs, which are standard "GI" spec for the 1911 pistol. If you are in doubt about whether your gun fits with these grips, just check the distance between screw centers.

You can easily make an "ambi-dextrous" safety relief with a little filing and sanding on the right grip. I don't do it because there are so many different shapes of add-on safety levers. The color is molded in, all the way, so you won't hurt the color by custom sanding. You can also create finger grooves: wrap 180 grit sanding paper around a dowel stick about the size of your finger, and stroke across the area where you want two or three finger grooves until you have the desired depth and shape. Then lightly sand with 220, 400, and 600 abrasive cloth for a professional, beautiful finish. If you have access to a muslin wheel buffer, you can buff the material to a high sheen. This is not necessary on ivory but looks great on pearl.

These grips were custom made 15 years ago by a company that has since gone out of business. They are modestly thicker than a stock set and feel very comfortable in my "medium" size hand.

No Hardware is included.

You may need to do some sanding and fitting. These grips may not just drop on the frame, you may need to custom fit them.

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!
