There was a comment a while back about liking to see pictures of grips on actual guns or something. I'm pretty particular about my 1911s, so they stay safe queens for the most part. But Cane was the inspiration for this idea. It's not an actual gun, but it fits the same so you can get an idea of how the grips will fit and it was a lot cheaper than my 1911s so I won't worry about scratching it when I put grips on to take photos.

Thank's CA. The photo really doesn't do them justice.
Really gotta see them firsthand!

It was my pleasure. Desert Ironwood always looks the best to me on a stainless frame. You chose well!

You need a set of these on that Kimber in your profile picture.
