Default New Grips for a new Gun

So, I just had an early birthday present ordered for me for my new Range Officer.

My mom felt these would look quite nice on her:

Supposed to actually have time to hit the range today and give the pistol its first run, but even if I can't get her to the range before the grips arrive, I'll be holding off installing them until I can make sure she works.

Lesson learned: Always listen to your Mother.

Nice looking grips. Looks like you might have gotten a set made for a bobtail frame, but they will still work for your gun. Just something to consider in the future.

Congratulations, but as Olympus said, those are bobtail grips. Contact Sarge and see if he'll exchange them for a correct pair.

1911user, please post an introduction in the Introduction Forum. You just joined today and are already attempting to sell very expensive grips. I don't mean to be offensive, but it doesn't look very good. We like to know who we're dealing with around here.
