Its been a long time since I've owned a 1911. Mainly because of financial reasons. I have tried to get buy with cheaper guns but there is no substitute for a good 1911. So, I have been saving for a few months and sold my Glock 36 the other day so I can buy an STI Escort. I should have enough money within the next few weeks to buy the gun which brings me to the reason for this post. I was thinking if I'm going to spend that kind of money on a gun I might as well get some custom grips for it. I would like to get a celtic cross on one panel and an american flag on the other. The only grips I have found that can do that is Alumagrips and they would run about $100. Is there any other company that will engrave pictures on grips. If not what's another hundred bucks right?

Esmeralda has a Celtic cross but not an American flag. You might shoot em email to see if they'll do it for you.

There's plenty of great choices for 1911 grips. :cool:

WOW, those are some nice looking grips. I checked out Esmeralda's the other day but missed the ones with the cross. A quick google search found some nice pics of them though. Sarge's are very nice to. I've always thought the wood one's look better than all the others :shocked:. And here I thought picking out the gun was the hard part. At least I have some time to figure it out. Thanks guys.

I truly and GREATLY appreciate the support gentlemen, but the goal is to get the person what they want in the end and make them happy. With this in mind, I have to defer to Esmerelda on this one. She is set up in shop for routing work on the grips, I am not. I can get it done, but it would be more costly in the end for the customer. She does great work as shown in another active thread here. While I believe we both have our strong points, I believe her routing ability in house will do the best job for the customer in this case.
Again, thank you very much for the kind words! I appreciate it.

It is nice to see not only an honest businessman but one that would refer a customer to his competition. Thank you sir. :wavey:

Talking to Ryan a bit offline, I will honestly say not only does he build fantastic grips, but he is an even better guy. Very genuine, and completely honest.
