Re: How to customize your 1911 grips
Thanks for the comments, they are always appreciated. You ask about the holes in the grips. They are smaller than the 1911 so I could not use the altered step bit. I had to use a regular bit, I forgot the size, then used a 5/16 router bit for the counter bore. the screw heads were different, they were real thin, and the screw was real tiny. Took some doing, but I made it. I was really worried about the fit, until he called and said they were perfect, what a relief.
My thanks goes out to 45Smashemflat, for his new thread Steel, Ivory and Leather, for all the testimony on my grips. These are Ivory grips that I made for him. He really had a hard time finding the Dimes, They are dated 1911.
