I honestly think those grips would look better on stainless. But I like different things than most.



What about the S&W E series? That's a nice looker too.

Maybe they would. Bring a stainless over and let me out them on and see.

I really wish I could like the S&W 1911s. I know they're great guns, but I just can't get past all the warnings on the slide. Just because a 1911 has "billboards" doesn't mean they need to be covered with warnings, huge model names, and front cocking serrations. Less is more in my book.

If I had one, I'd be right over!!


Yeah, those fish scales are too much for me, but others apparently love em.


If my old laptop hadn't crashed I'd photoshop a few pics for you. This Mac I'm using now has nothing useful on it yet.

Wondering about a Springer Loaded Target now. Don't know about all stainless.

Hate to say it, but also thought about a Kimber CDP full size with the black frame and silver slide.

Yeah you're probably right. Just trying to think of something different or something that you don't see too many of.

Love one, but probably outside of my budget. I'm think good quality budget, but not amazing quality budget. I don't want to have to save for six months before I get to put these fancy grips on a new gun.
