Compact 1911 Grips in English Walnut. Select grips with or without the thumb relief cut and all grips can be cut for an ambidextrous safety.
English Walnut is the King of Hardwoods for use in prized gunstocks. Its figure, color, and strength make it the choice of almost all the top gunmakers.
Whether this Walnut goes by name English, Turkish, French, European, or Circassian, its all the same species. Often the choice of name is based on the location the trees were harvested.
I found a great source for some very nicely figured English Walnut that will make some exceptional grips. These are cutoffs from the production of a high end gunstock blank supplier. This wood is from trees in the western US and from the Republic of Georgia. I'll be featuring more of these grips in the near future. And the price is incredible for grips with this kind of figure! You'd expect to pay twice as much.
These are production grips. You will receive grips that are similar to the grips shown in the photo. Grain and colors will vary on the individual pairs.

This purchase was my second and that's because I have only two 1911s. If I had more, I'd be buying more grips from Raasco. You can't beat the quality and the cuts and holes are so precise that you could literally mount the grips and never use the screws. The feel is awesome!
High quality, fine workmanship! I ordered these for my SIG 1911 Traditional Ultra. I now want another pair for my Springfield Range Officer Compact.
The grips looked gorgeous and fit very well on a Rock island Armory compact 45. They really are beautiful. Semper Fi from an old Marine. Giles
