Ruger Officers Grips/Stocks

Are the Officer's grips the same size as the Detonics Combat Master?
The old G36 is nice and runs fine but it ain't a 1911.
Our P238s are very nice but 380ACP has it's limits.
The Ruger would be wunderbar in blued steel.

Thx

No. I think they are the same length as the Colt Officers ACP. Below a 1977 Detonics above a 1985 Colt Officers ACP.



I also put some more information in the other 1911 section.

Thx Dakota.

Next question: are the Ruger Officer's grips the same size as the Colt Officers?
I want to get a jump on the Ruger Officer's grips I'm making until the SS version is in the shop.
Have read that the grip screw spacing is 2.6875".
Just want to be sure as I'm drilling a bunch of full frame fitting 1911s at 3.074" in white laminated wood, (14 layers @.300") and will just drill a few at 2.6875" and chop the bottoms when the Ruger arrives.
Thx,

Hopefully will get/make a lanyard attachment/magwell?... for it and my SS S&Walther PPKs pistol as my kayak fishing guns. The LCP ain't my favorite although reliable.
The old M59 is for bigger boats and bridges.

I believe they are the standard 1911 Officer grips.

Thanks Mike.
I'll drill the holes and wait for the Officer to arrive.
Last out-of-town gun took two weeks and lotsa phone calls but that new Smith X frame was just fine on landing.

The non-staked plunger tube is a plus but the grips chopped on top is unsightly at best.

Thx

Here is a pic of mine swapped.
The Ruger's grips are really thin.

Thank you Jim!

Wish the grip was the same length as the Government Model but with the short barrel.
Life is so cruel.
Short barrel, long grip carries nice on boats.
One of my favorites is the Colt Plus II, pic from the web, nice lines, something I usually just say about boats and women,
but the Sig P238HD is almost as nice.
Too many 380s is a South Florida curse.

Early Pic of one of our P238s with an extended grip, 7 round fits flush, a quality 8 round would be better. Current status is fuller so it feels like a real gun and carries like a DS or J frame.
Should have a metal or carbon fiber one by years end when it feels right.
Ain't gonna look like the Plus II but who knows.
I figured Sig would come out with an 8 round P238 with a longer frame/grip but their Legion is not quite it.

Also need a new N frame Smith eight shot in 357 but the Ruger became the priority for now.
Some day I'll run into a blued Detonics but that will also wait as budgets rule.

Revolvers and 1911s.
PPKs ain't too shabby either.

Talking

Hopefully, despite the current plague issues, the Ruger will be here before month's end.
I have a set of inexpensive plastic ones that will be here by the weekend, but who knows how accurate they really are.

The pic shows the full to frame width fitting grip blank under an old Colt grip.
Another thing I love about a 45 in a 1911 is it sounds great, distinct, like the sound of a Harley, revved up after jumping on the starter.

If you're to old to jump..... turn in your boots!

That naked Thumper launched a crook in the air and broke his ankle, back in '79, when he tried to start it.
Cops had no trouble catching him.
Add a side car and give to my boy for his kids in the Rockies.
I need to live forever.

A set of plastic 1911 Officers grips arrived from Premium Knife Supply today.
Hole spacing is on spec.
$12.90 to the door.
Grips are solid and not just shells.
The grips in pic are over our 1911 full size full width blanks.
Our hand laminated wood at $200/sq.ft.... 1"x12"x12", not including labor, ain't something to waste.... so now we can cut and drill some up while waiting for the Ruger to arrive.... and load ammo.

Curious to see if the Officer runs with the Gold Cup at 25/50/100yds.
Glad Markham Park range is open again.
