Wanting to try a few different mags. What would be a good mag that sits flush with the bottom of the grip. Don't mind 7 rounders or 8 rounders either. I see there are a lot of different types. Don't want to order the wrong ones.

I use Wilson and Chip McCormick mags mostly. Had good luck with both. I ordered a bunch of McCormick mags off cdnn not long ago that come with the bump pads but not on the mag. So they would sit flush if you wanted them that way.

Here you go. The new grips...look awesome! The last photo you can see the crack, which was from me overtightning the grip. The holes on the right side grip were just slightly off that the grip would go on one fine but the other would be a bit to hard to go over. I hollowed out the lower hole a bit more and used a bit of force to have it sit flush. That, with the fact that the screw was probably a bit too tight I cracked the lower grip. I don't plan to remove them so it should still be fine.

They feel great and I can tell they were made with quality in mind.Definitely recommend to others.

Oh no, do 1911's procreate like AR's do?

Great right up and awesome pics. My pics always suck.

Most of my 1911's have the Navidrex slimline Micarta stocks on them. Nice and slim, but very comfy. Brownells sells them.

To prevent that, you have to store them where they have no direct contact with any other gun, and keep your safe full.

When you get a new safe, they see all the extra room and immediately get to work trying to fill up the new space.

Love those Celtic grips almost as much as the Stingray.
