New from TAPCO: Some Pretty Rockin’ 1911 Grips

For some reason, TAPCO keeps drifting further away from the plastic stocks and accessories they’re known for and more towards the stylish looks of actual dead trees. While some of the grips display the same tonedeaf styling that makes their AR-15s look like they have shipping crates for handguards, there are a number that I would actually like on my handgun. Make the jump for the best and the worst . . .

    Blech, wht can’t they just stick to the classic Texas Rose pattern?

    Not bad. Altamont also does a lot with 1911 grips.

      I love my Altamont grips. TTAG reviewed them several months ago and I purchesed a couple based on the solid review. Very well priced and beautiful.

    I like the top one. Though I would not want to explain it after a DGU.

      Same reason I took the Hogue grim reaper grips off mine. I ended up with a pair of Alumagrip slimlines which are high quality and perfect for my hands.

      Explain what and to whom? Your taste in grips is going to be an issue after a DGU?

    Not my usual cup of tea, but I actually like those skull grips, just not so much on stainless though.

  5. avatar Ing says:

    Which one’s the best and which one’s the worst?

    If I had an overpriced, archaic (swee-eet looking) semiauto pistol, I’d choose the grips on the bottom. Them’s some nice pieces of wood.
