OK guys, I finally got my new Pachmayr ALS grips yesterday! They did require a slight modification to work with the ambi safety, but 10 minutes with a dremmel and I was golden! Here is the eye candy, let me know what you think...

Very nice Rocketfoot, now I know what mine'll look like when I get them. Those makes the PT1911 look that much nicer than with the standard plastic factory grips, and no doubt feel much nicer to wrap your hand around as well.

You're good with your camera... how about taking some pics showing how you modified the grips to fit the ambi-safety. A bunch of guys are going to be looking at replacing those black plastic grips and some good pictures would be a real asset!!!

PS... the grips look great!

Good idea...I should have snapped a few when I did the mod, but I will after this weekend. Going to camp to bust a few rounds, so she will need a good cleaning when I get back. I'll take the grips off and get a pic or two.

I'd been checking out a few various auctions on Ebay, when lo and behold, I ran across this. From the description given, it sounds as though the seller inset the Taurus medallions into the wood himself.
I thought some here may find them interesting. ;D

Funnily enough, the seller doesn't live too far from me.

Rocketfoot... I have been looking at your grips... and I have a PT1911 ordered... should be in tomorrow... and I just ordered the grips. However, I plan to do the frame in stainless which would still look really sharp.

Very Nice! I like the engraved initials! I have been looking for ivory grips with Molon Labe in greek letters! I think that would be cool...
Thanks. These were made by Sid Ryan, [email protected]. He can make just about anything you want. I sent him a color pic of the State Seal and you see the results. You can chreck out his work at:

Well RocketFoot... in the words of Jerry Clower's infamous Marcel... "Ya' done flung a craven' on me!"

Here is where I think I'll stop for now. I intended to do the reverse (black slide and silver frame) but once I got down and saw the look, I knew this was the true calling of this gun!

Just patience and fitting and trying and fitting and grinding and fitting... did I mention patience? It wouldn't have been so hard if I realized that the slot needed to be cut higher, but at least it looks nice... no holes in the grips.
