They have some really nice blended color combos but I like basic. When I ordered they had a special going. Order two pair and shipping is free. If that is still on I could use two additional pair.

RAASCO is really good stuff. Owner is a great guy and really into his craft and customer service.

Prices are very reasonable too. Highly recommended.

I have a set of Raasco grips. Nicely made - This might give me a chance to get the camera out for a photo shoot

I wish I could post some pictures, but can not as of yet do to just ordering a set. When they come in I will try and post some pictures.
I ordered this set with the Mag release cut and Main spring pin covered option.

$52.00 including shipping

I recently got a pair of applejack double diamond. In fact, the catalogue now sports a picture of my pair with the mag release cut away. The previous picture showed black double diamonds,which I would have preferred. Regardless, they are beautiful grips with a real positive gripping factor that has tightened my groups.

Probably a little late, but thought I'd share in case it helps anyone make decisions.



I actually have another set that's red and charcoal but on my SS PT1911 it looks more brown... Very classy looking, but in the end I decided I wanted something a little more untraditional.

Here are some pics of those:



Still very nice looking grips.

I got them half checkered, because I like the look of the smooth grips but I love the feel of the knurled grips... and doing them half-checkered really makes them look and feel great to me. Also these are the grips specially made to fit a Taurus. They're a little wider.

These are the two website pictures to compare:
http://raascogrips.com/td620.html

http://raascogrips.com/td200.html

Im really happy with them, very nice grips. Even little things... For example, notice the gap between the edge of the grip and teh beginning of the checkering on the front of the grip on the frame:

http://raascogrips.com/ta19gr.html

These dont copy the standard 1911 look with the grips coming nearly flush to the front strap, they still leave a small gap, but much smaller of a "gap" than youd get with regular 1911 size grips. But the curve of the face of the grips is a perfect match to the curve of the front strap, so it actually fits in the hands very nice, much better than the factory grips...

You can see what I mean here:



And this is the factory grip in comparison held over to the left:



And notice the factory grips dont mimic a standard 1911 either...



So they look nicer and feel nicer, just little things, attention to detail makes a difference here.

I love Raasco grips. Fit, finish, and price cannot be beat.

I Love the Rasco grips, when I received them I could not get over how well they were made. Better than I had hoped for.

Hi
I just put a pair on my Taurus 1911 and they are great. Nothing wrong with the factory grips, just wanted to dress it up a little. Went with the full checkered coco bolo grips. Was very pleasantly surprised that they have better grip surface than original grips, also look very good. Wish they made these for other guns I have.

On the last page of the PT1911 Gallery, there's one with Green Raasco's on it.

I really like the rosewood burgundy (w/ double diamond checkering). I think I'll be adding those to my PT1911 very soon. I'm also debating a buying a set for my Ruger 22/45 - I view it as a utilitarian gun but still wouldn't mind 'dressing it up a bit'.

You can't go wrong with Raasco grips, selection, color, price, quality, you get value for your money.
I have a few pair and like them all.
