Colt 1911 original grips?




Does anyone know where I can find a set of the original Colt girps. Double Dianmond walnut grips? The should have 15 rows between diamonds. Any idea what the cost on these will be? I have a very nice pistol. The serial number idicates it was made in 1915, but it didn't have any grips with it. Thanks for the help.

Tim

You could watch E-bay or there is a guy that sells vintage 1911 parts on Gunbroker.com. Price is unknown. There are repo's.

I once bought a set. They looked perfect, except that they were made very thick. Then Hogue makes a repro set as well, which is the right thickness but the large diamonds aren't as well-defined as they should be.

Original grips can easily cost $400 or more for a clean set, if and when they can be found.

Try not to fall into the common trap of wanting to replace everything on your new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out, and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot it for at least 500 rounds, then decide what you don't like and want improved. Vintage 1911's should NEVER be refinished or modified because it ruins any value they had as a collectible firearm.

Some of them are nearly 100 years old!! If in good condition, $400 might just be a good deal.
