Have had my pistol for about 4 months now. Been to the range 5-6 times as well as a couple of trips to a local gunsmith for rear sight adjustment. Sights are very good now and very pleased overall but thought the stock grips were just a bit two "plain Jane"!(Hope I can say that considering the current state of affairs in the country). Went on Ruger"s shopping sight and ordered a pair of the Cocobolo engraved grips. Liked the look, hoping they look as good once mounted on the gun. http://shopruger.com/SR1911-Cocobolo-En ... nfo/19854/

I got the same grips. I had to add an arched MSH to make them feel right.

Same grips on one of my Ruger SR1911-CMD9-A. Put the Eagle Wings; http://shopruger.com/SR1911-Eaglewings-Cocobolo-Grips/productinfo/19853/ on my other one. Put #60 O-rings on the grip screws to help keep them tight. Still tight & still looking nice after several cases of assorted factory & reloaded 9mm ammo.

Nice grips!
I went “cheap” with a set of Magpul TSP grips on my 9mm lightweight.

I figured they “would do” until I found something I like better. Then found I like them more than the expensive grips on my other 1911s.

As pretty as those Cocobolo grips are, when I buy an SR 1911, I will get some grips from Shane or Sack Peterson.

Funny (to me). Just a couple days ago I found some US marked 1911 grips in a drawer. They're new, and I didn't even know I had them. :wink:
