    Hey, my name is Laura, I'm new to the forum even though I've used it for info many times.

    My question is: I have a Colt 45 1911 Gold Cup Trophy and I'm dying to get some grips worthy of this gun. As I'm sure many of you are aware, this particular model has a wraparound grip. Can I change that out for a pair of basic side grips? I've tried to find an answer but haven't been able to get a clear one.

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Mahalo,

    Thanks so much! I was just worried that the fact that it comes with a wraparound grip might limit my choices for custom side grips, but I'm glad to find out otherwise!

    I'll check out the custom grip makers you suggested, and I've found a few beauties on Brownells already. Particularly a pewter one that really caught my eye. My dream grip would be Abalone, though (don't even wanna know the hole THAT would burn in my pocket)

    Haha, I feel you jp, sometimes I want a different grip for each mood. Leave it to me to pick 2 of the most bankrupting hobbies: guns & archery

    You can also go to colts web sight and they carry some custom grips. Or look up ( the finer grain sarges grips). He has all kinds of custom grips. I have a colt combat elite 1911 that I have been looking for grips for it also but haven't found any that are in my price range. I hate when the nice grips are to expensive ,and all you can do is look. I hope this helps .luke1999
