Select SOLID color ($10). Natural Ivory is no extra cost. For pearl effects, use PEARL option instead (Ivory = default)

Translucent/Pearl ($16 option). Do NOT select both SOLID and PEARL. (Pearl over-rides solid color choice)

Add a medallion ($14/pr):
Drill screw holes? (Send tracing for location):
Yes, drill holes (be sure to send accurate pattern for location)
No, do not drill the screw holes (be SURE you really want this option!)
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 are tough, heat and impact resistant Polyurethane Epoxy Resin grips to fit a Colt or Kimber 45 caliber Compact Model, and the Colt Officers model. It should also fit other short-grip, compact 1911-style autos with the same hole spacing of 2-5/8 inch between centers. It does not fit standard GI grip frame with hole spacing of 3-1/16 between centers. It will not fit the Llama or Firestorm .45 pistols. I have other grips listed for them.

These grips are ideal for people with large hands, who want a little better fitting grip for their compact "1911" style pistol. You can easily sand or file the material for clearance of an ambidextrous safety lever. The grips can be made thinner by sanding the backs. You would then need to re-drill the 0.250 inch stud holes on the back to proper depth. Full instructions for fitting are provided with the grips.

Grip side view Please note that I have many other "compact" grips listed as well as standard or full-sized 1911 grips, plus grips for ParaOrdnance and other guns similar to the 1911 which use different grip hole spacing. Be sure to check the hole spacing on your gun. That will tell you more than anything else which grips should fit -- or more important, which ones absolutely will not fit! You need to have 2-5/8 inch mounting stud spacing, center to center, to use this set of grips. That is 2.625 inches, or 15.875mm. If your grip mounting studs are 3-1/16 inches, your gun requires standard or full-size 1911 grips.

    Dimensions are:
  • Width at the butt (from notch to front) = 1.24"
  • Width above notch at butt = 1.5"
  • Width at top screw hole = 1.22"
  • Width at center = 1.4"
  • Right Panel Height = 3.71"
  • Left Panel Height = 3.77"
  • Thickness = 0.340/.350

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!
