Snake Skin Grips




So I saw a pair of snake skin grips on a 1911 today and fell in love with the look, does anyone have any they dont like? How do they feel in your hands?

Scaly yes - but I find that the scales add just the right amount of grip purchase for me. Very "grippy" but not overly aggresive (like some checkering and even some aggresive grips themselves).

My suggestion is to go with Sarge (the Finer Grain dot com) if you want a pair. He does them the best. Here is a pic or two of my EB Kobra with Sarge King Cobra skin grips!

I made a pair for my 1911.They look super,but you will feel the scales.Would not recomend for heavy use unless you go with a skin that has very tight fitting scales.My pair is Rattlesnake.
It is a true American look,and will make people ask a lot about them.
They also need to be "sealed",,,,with a clearcoat style spray.
Thank you,
Henry

If i'm not mistaken there's a guy on eBay that has his own little website and he makes custom 1911 grips by using different types of snakeskin. I checked out his website and he has four or five different types and they do look very nice.

I don't think this is him I couldn't find it but here's a few:
