This set has been fit to Les Baer and Colt frames. The plunger tube fitment and left side safety was fit with these quality guns in mind. While this set will fit any standard 1911, variations in plunger tube, mainspring housing pins slide release and safety levers may require added care when first installing. Do no force grips onto a gun that is not fit for this configuration. If they require extra minor fitting to your exact needs, contact us and let us assist you.
Note on installation. Care must be shown when installing and using exotic gmestone and fossil materials. Grips cannot withstand heavy abuse or rough handling. Grip screws can damage exotic material grips if over torqued. Do not overtighten grip screws. There is no need for this. Grips come with orings installed, simply snug up grip screws. You may use a small dab of blue loctite if you feel its necessary. We will not warranty any damage to grips from over tightening grip screws.
