1911 Magwell Profile A 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.

I've built custom 1911's for 35+ years starting back in the IPSIC years. Although I have built many Bullseye type guns for the competitive shooters along the way, most have been full house guns - and most all have the S&A magwell - customers just want them.
For a number of years I have searched for magwell cut "square bottom" grips and some well done sort-of-well. The problem mainly lies with the squared bottom and finding a set that metal-to-wood fits there well ie: lines up dead-on with the magwell bottom "ears".
This set from Raasco looks like they grew there. And the checkering is dead on to the line end diamond edges. Way too many "diamond" grips are left with the line next to the diamond as just a line - the checking does not go up to the diamond. IOW, they cheat.
If you are looking for what I would deem the perfect set of magwell grips, this is the maker.
This old Veteran thanks Raasco for a great product.
These are really nice and can't be beat for the price. Shipping was super fast too.
Great looking and great fitting grips. A fantastic addition to any 1911
1911 wood grips cut with thumb notches are not easy to find, and these can be ordered in any configuration you like, with or without the cut out for ambi safety, different grip patterns, different exotic woods... I'm like Imelda Marcos with a stolen credit card, lol.
I am so glad I found this place and their products. Very pleased.
