Default grips for rock island 1911 tactical

I just picked up a rock island 1911 tactical as a fun gun. Anyways i want to get some aftermarket grips i'd like to get some nice dark hardwood grips and a pair of hogue wraparounds but im not sure which models i need due to the extended ambi safety. Any suggestions or links would be appreciated thank you

any of them that have the RH grip relieved for an ambi safety should work fine. more and more grips for the 1911 platform are made with the relief on the RH grip, so people have the option of using an ambi safety if they choose to.

Standard Hogue grips and a razor knife for some fitting. Worked okay for me.

I saw the rubber wrap-around part on EBay, then you furnish the wood separatly. I think it is best to use thin grips over the wrap-around.

Just use Bing, Google, etc. you will find grips for any budget.

Check out Olympus's website at www.brownscustomgrips.com

VZ sells great grips to.

If who I think made them, I probably wouldn't expect to see him around here again. He lost a few friends.

i know. it's rather unfortunate too. he had some nice skills too.

BTW, you're kind of slacking in providing us with some good looking grips to drool over!
