Traditional Elegance Of Beautiful Hardwoods, Three Distinct Styles
Beautifully crafted, hardwood grip panels enhance the appearance of any 1911 Auto. Premium-grade woods are carefully selected for their natural grain patterns, then properly kiln dried for superior stability, precision shaped, expertly checkered, and carefully paired. All models are inletted for ambi safeties, with cutouts for the mainspring housing pin and crisply beveled bottom edges. A clear, semi-gloss protective finish seals the pores and protects the grip from moisture and scratches. Choose from one of four distinctive woods: Cocobolo is an extremely dense, reddish-brown wood tinged with orange and distinct grain stripes of dark red-brown. Rosewood is a richly hued medium dark brown with contrasting, almost black, grain stripes. Strong and heavy, it takes a smooth, even polish. Walnut, the traditional American stock wood, is light/medium brown with softly contrasting, slightly darker grain patterns. Black Dymondwood is an extremely hard, strong, durable, resin-impregnated laminate with a rich, black color like natural ebony. Dense grain with fine texture holds checkering exceptionally well. Three styles are available: Double Diamond - traditional style with 16 lpi checkering, broken by smooth diamonds at the grip screw holes. Combat - full-coverage, 16 lpi checkering, for maximum gripping texture when hands are wet or sweaty. Smooth - non-abrasive, no snag surface shows off the grain pattern best.
