    Does anyone know of a gunsmith that could make it so that i could have interchangeable grips? Or could i just go to any gunsmith and have them do that, or is that more of a specialty.
    Thank you.

    Some models of 22/45 have the grip panels molded in to the lower receiver, some (like my 22/45 lite) have removable grip panels; which do you have?

    If you have one of the models with the removable grip panels you're in luck; any full-size 1911 grips will fit, although you might have to do a little grinding to clear the slide release. Here's mine:
