Our 1911 grip panels are cut from G10 glass/epoxy composite in an aggressive 5 line per inch (lpi) pattern. They feature a .250" thick ordnance pattern radius, with ambi safety cutout, MSH pin cutouts, and flat bottom. The rugged materials resist impact and abrasion exceptionally well, and offer a long service life. The G10 is extremely hard and durable, and takes the checkering pattern to a fine point, which stays aggressive through extended use. The G10 composite material is totally impervious to water, oil, solvents, and most other common chemicals. It can be decontaminated in bleach solution after being exposed to hazardous materials that may be encountered in duty use.
G10 with aggressive relief cut for magazine catch. Fits full sized 1911 pattern pistols.
*Our grips are made in batches in a production format, and custom configurations are not available. They are only available WITH the scoop.
**Please note that colors may not appear true on your computer monitor, and the actual grips may have slight color variations from what you see here. Grips are produced in limited runs, and colors/models may be discontinued without notice. In other words, if you like them, get them while they last!
***The scoop is for access to the magazine catch, and is not a thumb rest. When shooting a 1911, your thumb should be located on top of the thumb safety. As such, these grips are only made with the scoop located on the left side with the magazine catch - ie. there is no "left handed" version.
****While the right side panel is relieved for the ambi lever, we cannot guarantee 100% compatibility with your gun's particular ambi. Some wet sanding may be necessary to allow the right side safety lever to move all the way into the down/off position.

I have a Springfield MC OP and while the Prachmeyer(sp) rubber grips were good, they didn't have the scoop cut out of them, and don't have the grip these do.
The scoop for the mag release really makes it nice. Well worth it.

When I got this grips from 10-8 I was impressed on how they were aggressively textured to keep my hands from slipping away from my weapon. It really blew the Kimber grips out of the water! What I liked about the grips in top of the aggressive texture was the magazine scoop so I can get to the magazine release without an issue. 10-8 you guys rock!

These grip panels are top notch! They provide a excellent balance of aggressiveness without being painfully annoying after shooting for extended periods. The mag realease notch made mag changes a lot smoother. I highly recommend them and will recommend them to my students who run a 1911. Keep up the good work 10-8!!

I purchased a set of these in Blk/Gry several months ago for a carry gun and really liked them. I ended up purchasing the Dirty Olive for a new build. I like the 5LPI checkering. Aggressive, but it does not hurt the hand or rub during shooting or carry. Really like the scallop cuts for reaching the magazine release. You will not be disappointed.

Running a Kimber Desert Warrior on which the stock grips were rubbish. I have consistently had good experiences with 10-8 products so I gave the black/desert sand grips a go. 10-8 service continues to be outstanding. Inside of a week the order came in and I probably spent more time giggling maniacally than it did to get the grips on. Looks great, feels right in my mitts. Aggressive but not so much that they are uncomfortable during long stages of fire. Sweaty, dirty and sunblocky hands had no negative effects whatsoever.
Punchline: Top notch product!! You buy now. Make gun happy.

I have small hands and have a preference for aggressive texture. I had these put on my Wilson Combat Classic. It offers a more comfortable shooting experience. Definitely recommend.

Not me anymore! I used to have some very smooth grips on my 1911 that has soon as my hands got sweaty, my grip suffered. I put these grips on and ran my 1911 through a 90 degree day at the range and was able to maintain a positive grip even as my hands turned to water.

Simply put: These grips provide outstanding purchase. They look good too. I will be ordering another set for my Ed Brown Kobra.

These are by far the best 1911 grips on the market. All of my 1911's will be wearing them ASAP.

I have these on both of my 1911 guns and love, love, love them. For my gun with ambi safety it only took a little filing for the relief. Best part about the material is that after filing them a little whip of the area and they look like they were made that way. The grip is awesome, I have excellent control of the gun and the scoop makes it easy to get to the mag release. The fit is perfect for the grip screws. I have two sets and they both just drop on the guns. No pressure to get them to seat, just drop them on. They are high quality and I would and will buy them again. Top notch stuff here and well worth the money.
