    New aftermarket grips = new screws on a PT1911?

    Thinking about some G-10's. They're already ambi cut.
    Will I need new grip screws?

    Some of the new G10 grips come with new screws. Mine didn't, but the ones I was using matched good enough for my taste. I'd say that you should be able to tell if you need new ones or not, by the picture they provide.

    Those are the exact grips I'm looking at!
    IIRC, he sells screws and torx wrench separately.

    Yes, I believe they do sell them separately. If you have stainless or chrome screws, it might be worth the investment.

    Nice grips. I saw some stag, fossilized bone, and mammoth ivory and man, were the expensive!
    The holster shown...is it a small of back (didn't want to use the initials...LOL!) or a pancake to wear on your side? I haven't purchased a holster yet and haven't decided whether to go OWB or IWB. I have a hanks belt.

    OldManBryson .. I'm a wood guy, burl, spalted, rosewood, etc etc. holster is just OWB to wear on my hip, believe it or not I rarely wear
    leather holsters down here in south Florida, gets to hot and humid, perspiration destroys leather, also most of my holsters for EDC are kydex for that reason and they are IWB not open carry, rather the public doesn't know I'm carrying ..nothing makes a handgun stand out than a nice set of wood grips IMHO ..

    No sir my EDC is a Glock model 42 in .380 with a viridian holster activated laser sight, on occasion I'll strap on the PT1911 accurate shooting pistol also, but most of my practicing is with the 42 small, compact, and deadly at 7-10 yards ...
