Both the 1911 and BHP are great guns. I think the BHP grip is pretty and fits my hand the best.
BHP T-Series purchased 1969

Colt 1911 Black Army mfg 1918

Those ivory grips are gorgeous against that black. Might have to copy you if I pick up a 1911 afterall.

Thanks all. I'm very happy showing them when they're appreciated. Normally I'd prefer to leave the original grips on a military gun, but for presentation purposes nice old elephant ivories definitely enhances the 1911's appearance. I guess I'd use any excuse to throw on a set of ivories.

If I do decide to "pull the trigger" on one, I will have to pretty it up a bit with some nice grips. Probably have several different styles just for my ever changing mood, or to match my outfit. Hahahahahaah

In that case, steer clear of Kimber. There have been many incidents of the warranty (which kinda sucks with them anyway) being voided because of grip panel changes.

But... Research that one yourself instead of taking my word. My word on that is hearsay. From owners of course, but hearsay nevertheless.

I neither can nor would afford a Kimber, valueless to me, but thanks for warning. I'll be doing something entry level like RIA, Metro, American Classic, or and most likely Girsan.
