Yeah, when the mag is inserted it fits like the stock grips. I should have taken the pics with it in I guess. Next time I will insert the mag for better reference.

Do you shoot your 1911 or is it a gun safe queen??? To me i think the carved grips would just make your hands sore as heck from shooting it. Letvme know if im wrong

The grips do not bother my hand at all. The first set I made did, so I moved the fillagree, and now it is very comfortable. Some one with a different sized hand would probably not enjoy the feel. It is a pretty agressive seeing too, just to show the 3d concept. Something less portrusive would work for the average person better. A few more people tell me what is a decent price and I will tell you what I told the guy. keep in mind that it was a complete custom order.

I have seen custom grips go up an over 600$ i had a custom stock an forearm built for a model 94 , an that was $1,600 it dosent take long with wood choice to get the price up

Mine is a Llama. It is based off of the 1911 platform but all the parts are metric. Nice little shooter, accurate.
