Determining 1911 Frame Size
How do I determine the frame size for my 1911?
The easiest way to determine the size of your 1911 frame is to measure the center to center distant of the grip screws.
- If the center to center distance is approximately 3 1/16" you have a Government Model or Full Size 1911.
- If the center to center distance is approximately 2 5/8" you have a Compact or Officers Model Size 1911.
- If you have a Para Ordnance or Para USA and the center to center distance is approximately 2 3/8" you have a C6 Size 1911.
