    Nice. Of course, a double checkered pattern would have been fitting for a 1911.

    I like the checkered wood, Double Diamond is my favorite style, but those look nice.

    That has a beautiful classic 1911 look to it with the DD grips. I like much better. :supergrin:

    I'm kinda of torn I tend to prefer just checkered grips but I agree on this gun the DD grips might look better. I got these grips because they where pretty cheap and I wanted to see if they would look right on this gun.

    I will probably be send this gun off in the next couple weeks for a complete rebuild and new grips will be supplied with that but I have a twin for this gun as well but I might leave the factory grips on it I'm just playing around with it now. :dunno:

    Checkered looks good but the DD looks even better.

    I don't think I want medallion grips on this gun though.
