    It's surprising how a set of new grips will make a gun look totally different. I picked up a set of Coco Bolo Double Daimond grips form CDNN for $20 bucks and it makes my ATI look like a different(higher priced,LOL) pistol. Here's a pic of the gun with the old grips then a couple with the new ones.

    Thanks guys. The stock grips on the ATI look a lot better then those plain grips that RIA uses but nothing beats a pair of Double Diamond grips. I think they're about the best looking grip you can get for a 1911a1. I have seen some VZ grips that were a very close second though but when you compare $20 to $65 I think the DD's win out. :cool:

    Looks great. Grips on 1911's are like tires and wheels on a car or truck. Makes all the difference in the world.

    Looks great :) I favor wood grips over all other types of materials.

    That's a very good way to put it. The Center Line rims on my V8, S-10 really make it look good, wouldn't be the same with stock rims.:cool:

    The CDNN Herrett Stock grips are the deals of the century. I got them on my Beretta 92FS and the Colt Gold Cup Stainless.
     
  10. A little pricey.? But i love the VZ G 10 grips,? & their hardware screws to boot.?

    Looks much better and I can tell they have more grip over the older shiny type.
     
  12. The new grips look much classier than the old ones.
     
  13. Grips do make a difference. I like the VZ grips I put on my parkerized but something about wooden grips that give them that classy look, especially on a stainless.

    LOL, actually, if you consider that I sold the 3, 8rnd SS Colt mags that I got with the gun for $50 bucks then yep, I've got $420 into it with the grips. Good call. :supergrin: Of course the dang thing shoots like a million bucks to go figure. LOL
