Bobtail 1911 grips fit the full size Government Model 1911 that has been modified with the Bobtail Mainspring Housing. This gun was pioneered by Ed Brown and has been a favorite for concealed carry by many. Ed Brown, Dan Wesson and Para USA have all built guns with the Bobtail mainspring housing as well as may custom 1911s.
These grips feature a covered mainspring housing pin and have a relief cut on the back of the grip to accomodate the domed pin. These slim grips are built to a thickness of about 0.16" and require the use of slim 1911 grip screws and bushings.
