CUSTOM 1911 HANDGUN GRIPS LARIMAR
Made from a solid slab of reconstituted Larimar gemstone laminated to a black micarta backing, then hand polished. Handcrafted by Ed Strange in our Michigan workshop. Ed’s hand crafted grips have graced the covers of numerous magazines and catalogs, and can be seen in some popular TV series and movies. Ed will spend hours of intense labor to craft each set, bringing out the beauty of the material while fitting to quality pistols to guarantee a level of fit worthy of the Wicked Grips name. There is no CNC machine in this process as each set Ed makes is truly hand crafted.
These grips are made from Gemstone. Gemstone is brittle and care must be taken with exotic brittle materials. These grips are intended for mild use and display. These are not meant for daily carry or shooting sessions that are hard on the gun.
Fitment: 1911 Fullsize standard frame. Pictured on a Colt Series 80 1911 and Les Baer BOSS 45. Grips are pictured with our exclusive 12kt Rose Gold grip screws featuring Aquamarine CZ stones, available if you follow this link:1911 CUSTOM GRIP SCREWS
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. 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.
