Didn't someone post a thread recently about those guns not having the same spacing on the grip bushings as standard 1911s?

I'd look into that before ordering anything.

Thanks for all the input guys. Olympus I have previously searched for input on the Tisas, but didn't recover anything about grip interchangeability issues, and have noticed many people changing the grips. I'll have to double check on that. So are there no takers on the punisher grips? lol I kinda like the idea that black grips will match my blackhawk but then again I could also call it my punisher haha I will take a look at all the suggestions though before rendering a decision

Between the two you have picked - my choice would be the black checkered ones for sure (just not into the whole "punisher" theme myself)....

But as others have mentioned, check out VZ Grips, Esmeralda, Sarge (The Finer Grain) & Brown's Custom Grips
I own grips form all of these makers - all are PREMIUM grips!!

PS - Olympus (who you have just been talking to) is one and the same as Brown's Custom Grips!
Olympus is a top notch grip maker!

Thanks Bart! I'm on several different forms and I'm always surprised to see that I usually get forgotten about. Surprising because I've been around longer than the usual suspects and probably sold more sets of grips than 90% of the other custom makers, including making grips directly for an ultra-high-end 1911 manufacturer.

But I can always count on you to be sure an include me. Not only here, but elsewhere too. It doesn't go unnoticed and it's greatly appreciated!

I apologize I was mistaken. It's the Girsan that has didn't grip bushing spacing. Not your gun.

Personally... I would not adorn any "defensive" pistol with "Punisher" grips... or "Death Wish" grips... or any grip that glorifies a Hollywood Vigilante.

Should you ever be forced to defend your life with this tool, it will become "evidence", an the chance of an anti-self defense prosecutor, flashing those "evil" looking grips at the jury, is a real concern.

Just my .02 Cents...

Tack

Punisher is kind of flashy. I think a GI model needs classic wood. Just my opinion. The only 1911 in .45 auto I know that has different grips is some sig sauer models. You can see its rounded at the lower palm.
