Grip Panels for a 1911

I'd like to pick up some new grip panels for my 1911's. Right now, I've got a Kimber Tactical II Pro, Colt Delta Elite 10mm, Springfield Stainless Loaded and a Kimber Stainless Custom. Right now, everything is stock.

Any particular brand you guys recommend that I should look at first?

Do you like wood or the G10 type grips?
What price in your budget?


For me,....VZ or Larry Davidson for G10 type grips, Esmeralda for wood grips.

Oh 1911 grips, gone thur many

VZ is good, Alumagrip is equally good. I like wood and think Wilson Diamondwood is the best of the breed.

Want something unique then Grips By Esmerelda is a great choice as well.

I think I prefer the look and feel of the G10. I've got wood ones on the Kimber TacII and the SA. They look great and perform well....I'm just looking for something a little more customized. Budget isn't really an issue, unless it's going to run me north of $100 for a set.

Iam also looking for a new set for my Colt 1911 Government, I want wood, a redwood or cocobolo, I really like the Wilson Starburst Cocobolo grips, but they are so expensive.

Another vote for Alumagrips...really does make a difference when carrying. But, most of my full size 1911s have G10s...easier to grip, and they don't chew away at your palms when at the range all day.

I am going with the Altamont Colt Serpentine AA in Super Rosewood, or the Wilson Starburst Cocobolo grips

I haven't shot my Delta Elite with the Alumagrip yet, but I don't think that it would chew up the palms with the checkering. The checkering on my Alumagrip is very light. Feels almost smooth.
