    I had asked awhile ago about what 1911 to get. It is my parents graduation gift for me. I just bought this baby today and can pick her up on Friday when I am back in town with my paperwork. It's a Springfield 1911A1. Only thing I dont like are the rubber grips. Does anyone know if all 1911 grips will fit it, and also where to get some nice wooden ones?

    Sorry messed up with pics. Hold on while I try to resize them.

    Congrats, if its a full size then the standard grips will fit from anyone.

    I've bought grips from RAASCO before. They have some nice stuff.

    Ahrends and Esmerelda are other popular makers.

    Beautiful! The Black Stainless model was my first 1911 as well----great gun. I personally like the black grips on this particular model, but there is no shortage of options if wooden grips are what you want. Congrats!!

    Nice.

    Some VZ grips would look great on that 1911.

    Great choice, just like gremlins, 1911s multiply very quickly.
