Slotted grip screws.

Are all slotted grip screws created equal? The grip screws on my knives and RO are gun show cheapies, they had a big tub full of them and I bought enough. I see that Wilson is getting 18 bucks and 10-8 is getting 12 bucks, I'm just wondering if they are worth the extra bucks

I like the 10-8 that have the concave slot that a shell casing rim fits into.
Not that I ever see myself using a case rim to remove it but simply because it copies the original screws that were designed for the 1911's by Browning.

When you get into screws sold by top name makers like that. They are probably all close to the same quality wise. It's when you run into the gun-show specials and junk parts makers like John Masen that you have substandard materials going into the part.

I would never pay the price for Wilson screws as that's just ridiculous. However you can still get high quality parts from Cylinder and Slide for about 5 bucks a set through Midway.

The best ones are the screws cut to accept the hollow ground screwdriver.

C&S are good as it gets

I need to get some for the new 1911s around here because one of the joys of the 1911 is that it is its own tool kit. I hate hex screws. I was taught to use the toe of a GI mag.

I plan on replacing the hex on my Kimbers and inlet a space under the grips for the little paperclip tool used on the 2 piece guide rods.

Yep...


I picked up several sets of the blued ones, and a couple of the stainless ones to replace some chromed screws on a Springfield. The blued ones were nicely polished and blued and the stainless screws were highly polished as well.

Nice threading and a nice looking face.

This is the best pic I have.

That they are.

Those are the electric green Hogue Zombie grips. A stupid marketing ploy, but highly visible.
