Mark Morris sent me another set of Alumagrips for my Tactical Elite. :)

I just shoot better with standard thickness and wanted a set before my next range trip. I really like the look of the black Alumagrips, so this is the perfect match.

I'll be putting some rounds downrange this weekend. :supergrin:


They look similar in the pics, but that extra width makes a huge difference in hand.


Here's thin

...and my new standard.

I also like the way the right grip doesn't have the ambi slot. I hate the way that looks with no ambi safety.

I'll tell you, ever since I got my Guncrafter, I really like Alumagrips. :cool:

My Guncrafter was my first 1911 with them.

Man, that is just a great looking pistol. Not a huge fan of the green Alumagrips (although they are better than the Shredders) but I just love it's simplicity. Never get tired of seeing the NN.

Thanks Paul.

I'm not crazy about the OD color either, but I really didn't care for the standard NN grips.

Yeah I am surprised they don't give you an option for Alumagrips instead of Alumagrips. They would look REALLY good on the NN.

Those black grips look really bad *** with the HC it's a very slick combo. :cool:

I might have already asked you this but what rear sight is on the Morris is that the Heinie Classics?

Not sure why they don't, but I'm not a big fan of OD on any gun.

No TB, they're Morris TKO sights. They're built like a brick ****house.

From Morris' website:

"I have used other sights for a very long time and have been happy with them to a point but there were some areas that I felt needed to be addressed and I decided to build my own sight that met my criteria. I wanted a sight that could withstand harsh and hard environments, so I made my sights from bar-stock steel that could be heat-treated to a point where they were neither brittle nor prone to damage from life in the real world.

The TKO has a .130 wide rear notch for faster front sight acquisition and a sight picture area that is under cut at 1 degree to give a great sight picture even when direct light is overhead. The rear blade area is longer or thicker front to back to accommodate Tritium tubes for the night sight version with the additional benefit of extra protection for the Tritium. The sides of the sight blade are rounded for smooth, snag free carry and to protect the shooter's hands.

The TKO is over built but at the same time the lines are thought out and designed to look graceful on a 1911 slide. They are available as a direct replacement for slides with the Heinie and Novak sight cuts.

These sights are the most correct sight available, developed for use in the most demanding of situations. They are tough and offer a superior sight picture and yet are made to fit the profile of the 1911 and look in place. They are also available in the three dot style with two tritium dots in the rear sight. Just remove your Heinie or Novak sights and install these for a fantastic sight picture. "

Hey Brian, it's almost hard to tell the difference in grip thickness from the photos.
I shot a 1911 with thin grips on them and didn't like them at all. They made the grip feel too thin for me.
I much prefer the standard thickness.
Between growing up with the standard 1911 grips and shooting Glocks now I don't think there is any chance I would ever like the thin grips on any of my 1911's.
When you hold an aluminum grip can you tell that it is not just another grip? Is there that much difference to how it feels? They look good.
Sometimes it's a tough decision to make on how they feel and how they look.
Sort of like the Hogue Finger grip wrap arounds... feel great but look kind of crappy.

:dunno:

Not sure, but I like tham as much as any other sight I own, including a couple different Heinie models. I also like the fact that they're notched in the back also.

Some other nice rear sights are the set on my Pistol Dynamics, which Liebenberg builds in house. I also like the sights on my Unertl, which were also a proprietary part.

Thanks Alan.

I never tried carrying thin grips, but I've thought about it. Obviously, it makes sense.

I don't see how it could make a perceptible difference.

It should.

Other than the safety, the grip is the widest part of the 1911.

Its probably close to the difference between a single stack and a double.

my 2011 grip is actually thinner than a 1911 with standard grips.

Yeah, those modular frames are very functional.

I like the shredder grips on the No Name but I might order some of the alum grips. The shredder grips are well named. I am running out of shirts.

If you want a set of the GI Alumagrips, contact me via email and I will get you hooked up and save you a few bucks. I will just have Alex drop ship them to you.

They look like they might be Ergo. It appears they have hard plastic and hard rubber. Look "grippy" either way.

Lawdog, you may want to take Dave up on that.

The Alumagrips are outstanding on the NN. :)
