actually the ivory color may contrast better with the darker blued finish on your 1911. maybe two sets of grips?

My gun actually is the hard chrome finish so they will pop really well on it. I will post a pic of the finished product once they are here and on my gun.

Ok just recieved them Monday but was in Alabama for work and still couldnt find any ammo, imagine that!!!!!!!! But here they are so pumped but gotta get a set of screws since Girsan screw heads are about a 16th of an inch to big.
