Grips just arrived.

Great presentation I think, nice simple box, clearly of decent quality, no fuss :D Grips well presented inside and clearly padded enough to protect them.

As for the grips themselves, lovely :D Gonna head straight over to where my 1911 is and fit them :)

Pics of mine will be up later; got my camera on charge :D

The box was definitely a nice touch; I'm not sure what I expected, but it was a nice surprise to see what looked to me like a lot of care being taken over the presentation.

The only thing I would note is that one of the hole in the backside of one grip was a little off-round and didn't quite snap into place until I screwed it down. Not an issue now that it's fitted, but I was a little worried that it might crack the wood if I wasn't careful :)

I must say, they take my 1911 to a whole new level of smartness :D I've always been content with plastic grips, and now I just have to wonder why? (It's a lot like when you get a metal gun and wonder how you ever lived with plastic in the first place).

Ok, time to get my 3rd 1911 and not sell it this time.

Wood for me!
Ask me about general tech problems, I'm happy to help most of the time ;) I'm decent with AEGs, but my speciality is snipers, that being AEG, spring and gas. I'm quite good with GBBR systems too, WA especially.

Ask me about your Tanaka/KJW bolt action problems!

Give me your w-


Wait... No.

I'll get my own thanks :D

Edit: Nutster, are you having problems with your 1911? I'm fairly familiar with the 1911 design, so if you need help I might be able to :)

I decided to double post, just to make sure people don't overlook my adding of photos :D

I've tried to do something a bit more interesting than just getting photos of the grips since I'm home alone and can move the house around to set up a shoot without mum and dad panicking because I'm carrying their heirlooms (if you can call brandy glasses, a clock and a wood box heirlooms) round the house etc.

Obvious theme is pretty obvious (I think)

Hope they display okay - I'm not on my usual photo editing monitor so they could be dark/light/generally crappy (they're not *that* great anyways, I'm severely out of practice) :)

You wrote a letter just for a photoshoot!?! :P

But again, the grips look great, out if interest, how good are the holes on them, well done? Look great quality

The theme is... Guns and alcohol always mix, along with cigarettes to look badass? :D

I also bought a 7 pack of fags, which I won't smoke (non-smoker) and drank some whisky :P

But overall, it's worth the effort, I'd say these grips are worth far more than the cost of the stuff I've used tonight, and being as photography is one of my "things" the man-hours are a freebie :P

The holes are good; one of my grips could have done with the top hole rounding off a bit better, but to be honest, it isn't an issue, could easily be down to variations between the gun they were fitted against when being made and mine, and they're fine now that I've screwed them on.

Edit: No Cerbo, there's a 1911, a thompson, a suit, whisky, cigarettes of a brand popular since before the second world war (no lighter either ;)) and a letter written in Italian :P Try again xD

Makes me want a classic 1911 again- shame they'd look out of place on my night warrior.
