Default Looking for custom grips

Hey all, I'm wondering if I could have a pair of grips made. I want them to be ivory like with silver shamrock medallions. Does anyone know if there is a company that makes them or point me in the right direction?

If you want real ivory with real silver inlay, there are very few people who can or would be willing to take a project like that.

real ivory grips with silver inlays are going to be very expensive. would probably cost much more than the pistol. might try faux ivory, but the silver inlays would probably have to be custom made.

suggestion is to Google "custom 1911 gripmakers" and start contacting a few and see if they can make them for you. even with using faux ivory, the grips like you want will not be cheap.
