1911 Sig NIGHTMARE ROUND BUTT / FASTBACK

1911 SLIM FIT THIN / 1911 OFFICERS THIN
These grips fit the same guns, but are thinner in cross section for those with smaller hands, and require thin / slim grip screws and bushings for the frame, which we also carry. Some guns come from the factory already set up for Slim / Thin grips… if your grip panels are much thinner than .250 (1/4″).. from .180-.170 depending on manufacturer, you have slim / thin grips. If you are unsure, please contact us and we will advise you.
Below you will find many close up photographs, showing the level of fit that we put into each & every set of grips… custom order, or sold on the website.
We spend many hours hand fitting each & every set to actual guns… to assure the closest possible level of fit. each line… grip screw hole location & depth… relief cut & edge have to meet our high standards.
Bevels on standard 1911 panels have to match, in angle, cove & shape on each side. They have to be mirrored to meet our standards.
Bobtails have to have even & precise double beveling, as well as match the curve of the frame to exactness. Side edges must mirror, so when viewed from behind, the grips match the gun and each other.. perfectly. Bobtails are made to order, and are not converted 1911a1 grips… to assure this level of fit.
Magwell fits must have even fit on the “broken”edge, as well as mate to the bottom edge of the grip frame so as to assure a seamless look.
Safety levers must nest into the grip panel as seamlessly as possible, while still allowing coverage of the plunger tube…. a style of fit we pioneered.
Right panel tops, and magwell bottoms have a precise, hand cut broken edge to allow for comfort, as well as style.
