    Hi,

    I am a Filipino American, I have an Armscor FS singlestack I just bought here in the US...great pistol! I've been outshooting my buddies that have high dollar Kimbers. Anyways, I had my father in law who still lives in the Philippines buy me some really nice Kamagong Grips, but they don't fit my pistol? seems like the bottom hole is cut about 1/4" lower than standard GI spec grips? Everything else looks like it fits. I also have a double stack Armscor coming soon, any chance it will fit this model? Worst case I will buy an officer size Armscor and cut the grips down and drill a new hole. Grips are very beautiful and its a shame not to use them.

    Armscors have standard 1911 grips unlike Llama. It could be that the grip maker did not drill the holes well where they were supposed to be.

    And it won't fit your double stack.

    The grips might not be for standard 1911's.

    Otherwise it'll fit your armscor.

    And if there's a next time, maybe you can forgo having the holes drilled. Just drill it when the grips can be fitted to your gun.
