What grips would you put on this 72 year old piece of family history? Links would be helpful.
most any grips for a 1911 will work just fine, but personally, i would look for some OEM replacements that look like the originals. i would want to keep that pistol looking as close to original as posssible if it were me.
Google 1911 grips, as there are those who make reproduction grips for the older 1911 pistols. off hand i can't recall who does, but i have seen them before.
