I would really like to order a set of Raasco Dymondwood grips for my Stainless PT1911. Just one problem.....I can't decide which color scheme I like the best. They all look awesome. Please help, which do you all think would look the best on a stainless PT1911. Post some pics of yours if u have some. Have searched the parts forum but didn't quite see what I wanted. Kinda have limited it down to:

1. Charcoal & Brown
2. Heritage Brown
3. Royal Marlblewood
4. Apple Jack

Also I was thinking of going with the 1/2 smooth 1/2 checkered, the factory ones are just a little too aggressive for me, or does anyone prefer all smooth?

I just cant decide!!!! Thanks

I have this Rosewood set on a Remington R1 right now, I have another set on order for the Remington from Raasco. The set on this Remington is for a Pt1911SS. I ordered them for mine and decided to put something else on my PT1911. These have the Mag well cut and mag release and also the ambi safety cut. If interested I will let these go for $30.00 to include shipping. They have been on the Remington less than 3 weeks . Here is a picture of them. If anyone interested give me a Email. Mine should be in by next week for the Remington.

Aim Small, Miss Small

There is a gentleman who made a video about installing an S and A magwell, informative and funny as heck. I think its over on "Gunsmithing". The point is, he had a set of Raasco Dymondwoods on his Taurus and they looked great. Check it out, vids 20 minutes or so long so you get to see them for a while.

My applejacks.
A bit flashy, especially since the diamonds are red instead of black.
I'm going with a more tactical sage, tan, brown combination on my next order.

Though plain black and boring the stock grips are very utilitarian.

shoot safe, shoot straight, and have fun
