: my latest custom gun project

On my TRP 1911 operator, well I love the skate board grips that come with it, and they do look bad ass, but I wanted something alittle bit more in your face for when I go to combat or competition shoots.

SO after 8 hours of looking for what someone told me were some killer grips for paintball gun, I finally found them.

Took me a couple more hours, to mill and hone out the grips, and chop them down a touch for this 45 cal.

Well, I am just about done just need to buff them up more where I did some honing, and FIND SOME DAM SCREWS that fit the 1911, the screws are like M4's but even finer metric thread, so now this odyssey for a screw hunt might take me a while.

but here they are and what ya think?
pretty bad ass huh?

You got way too much time to spare :evil
Looks good, but how does it feel when gripped? Not that you probably care lol

awesome looking but for competition it looks like your grip might be a little trouble....

thanks guys, actually its a touch bigger gripping it around, but drawing it ,and presenting and 2 handed gripping, is no problem for me.

its more for show then anything, it feels, like my 92fs brigadier with the hogue grips, big and locked in with the finger notchs, but these grips dont have that, just the larger feel.

all and all i rate it a 7 in grip feel, and 10+ in looks.

the original grips i rate a 10 in grip! and 7 in looks.

That looks sweet, I am into having weapons and all but I don't know jack-shit about guns, but would like to learn though. Me and my brother are huge sword collectors we got like over 15 so far, they all are different in sizes and weight. I love paintballing too

Nice looking 1911...If I'd known you were into action pistol shoots, I would have let you known about the ones they have up @ Bristol WI over the summer (plus they have 100 & 200 yard long gun ranges and a separate trap area)

Since your'e into modifying, do you know if there's a conversion kit for a Delta Elite from 10mm to 40s&W or 45ACP?

thanks guys, ahh answer time, no there not that shiny, but trust me you do a double take once they catch your eye, the m6 laser light was around 270.00 the grips are made of pewter, and they were 60 bucks.
