Full Size 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.

    Great Product

    The grips are of great quality and craftsmanship. The diamond cut has a surprisingly strong grip. They fit the 1911 perfectly and they add an elegant look to a classic firearm. The price was very competitive and they arrived quickly. I highly recommend this product.

    English Walnut Checkered Magwell grips

    Posted by Robert on Nov 19th 2017

    Wow! $29 for a nice set of English walnut custom grips! I spec'd a set of magwell grips and had the thumb relief cut in for easier access to the mag release button. When I got the grips I was very, very impressed. Excellent fit and quality. The best money I ever spent on grips-EVER!

    These grips made my Colt's MK IV / Series 70 pop! Great workmanship. Attention to detail gets no better than this!

    Excellent Grips

    I've got 3 sets now and want to order another. The checkering and diamond pattern on these is perfect, and I've owned lots of different 1911 grips over the years. You will not be sorry if you order these. Price is right, too!

    could not be more satisfied

    Thanks Raasco. The grips came two days after I ordered them. I purchased two pairs of the English walnut double diamond grips. The machining is perfect and the wood is beautiful. Both pairs are brown with darker vertical streaks.

    Excellent Quality

    Finish quality is great, subtle satin on the smooth parts. Checkering is crisp and well defined. These grips are a steal for the price.

    1911 grips

    I ordered a set of english walnut double diamond grips standard thickness, which were shipped very promptly. I was pleasantly surprised at how well made they were and upon installing them found them to have just the right feel for my hands. Liked them so much I ordered a second set that very afternoon.
