Custom grips - I need your help

Recommended Posts

Hi guys !

 

Some of you might have seen my previous post on the 1911 grips.

I have also given a few sets away and had some great feedback ! Thanks

 

Through the feedback I have learned a lot and have made numerous changed to how I make the grips.

I will post about this later.

 

Anyway, I need your help

 

I would like to make the grips so thst they are compatibly on as many models as possible.

 

I have found the raised area of the screw hole on the TM 1911 quite high and on the KWA1911 low as seen in the photos.

 

If I make a set on the TM it will also fit the KWA, but if I make it on the KWA, it will not fit the TM.

 

I therefore have to make them fit on the make that had the highest raised area.

 

This is what I am asking.

 

Please submit a photo of this area of your gun. ;)

 

Not TM or KWA - I have them.

 

Also measure the distance between the centres of the 2 holes.

 

I find them to be 78mm on both the TM and KWA

 

Thanks for any help

 

I am working on quite a few sets of grips and they look very cool indeed.

 

I am also now supplying a care kit with the grips - oil, lint free cloth

Hicapa's have very different grips in that it is actually half of the frame so I cant see it helping :)

Jean - the grips you sent me fit my WE 1911 perfectly, so you can assume that the layout you used for those is fine (I presume you used a TM base). Only issue was on the interior of one hole, it was slightly off-round and that was what caused the fitment issue.
