  1. If I were a member of the Yakuza and owned a compact 1911, it would have those grips on them.

  2. Marketing idea: TTAG grips.

    Why not let the readers come up with a design of the TTAG logo for use on these grips? We buy them as part of a new product promotion.

  3. Those are awesome! A lot of cool looking grips on their site. Looks like you can get most of them for full-size 1911s as well.

  4. I’d personally prefer some gold or silver dragons… that shade of red looks a bit off to me.

    Besides, if you’re gonna ostentatious with your 1911 grips, you might as well go balls out. MORE BLING! as the youngsters stay these days.
