I recently added three 1911's to my collection. A few weeks ago I ordered new grips for each one from Curt Ullery at Custom Grips-R-Us. I finally got all three 1911s and all three sets of grips together and want to share pictures of the end result.

The first picture is my new Kimber Custom Shop Stainless Raptor II. The grips are carved out of a set of bookend blanks of Spalted Maple.

The second picture is my new Sig Sauer Custom Shop 1911 Max. The grips are carved from a set of Maple Burl blanks.

The third picture is my new Rock Island Armory 1911 XTM-22 Magnum. The grips are carved from a piece of Buckeye Burl.

A good looking trio. I really like the Rock Island Armory, and not just for the grips. :thumb:

Don, those spalted maple grips were worth the wait seeing on your gun. Truly beautiful. All three are.

I am glad you like them, they are my favorites. The colors are actually a bit darker, especially the green. It is hard to get a picture exactly the way you want it with just my cellphone camera.

Here is another picture that shows the color a bit better.
