    Pachmayr American Legend. I have installed them on my ACII. I had to do some sanding, since they were getting caught up on my extended slide stop..........But they feel great. I need to change the screws now. That is light not rust. Enjoy

    Very nice. Those grips make the gun feel like it's part of your hand.

    I thought the rubber was cheap at first. Now I love it.

    I just added the same grip to my Dan Wesson RZ45 and shot today with that grip for the first time. Just loved it. It really make the 1911's look great. I really like the look of your gun with the grip.

    I was thinking of going with the Raasco grips. But when I saw the American Legend grips, I had to have them. Next on my list is these walnut grips Im trading the originals for, then to the Raasco. Also I was looking for some dark red grips. The pachmayrs are a high polished rosewood.
    Like I said with the extended slide stop, I had to sand it for about 5 mins to get it to fit just right,

    watch for the little Patchmayr buttons. They come off at the worst possible time and will get lost. Been there. :(

    At the 1st sign it is coming lose, just pull it off and re-glue.

    Nice looking grips. What is the design/cutout on the hammer?

    M over a A...???? Like Metro Arms? The importer. Looks like they all have the same hammer to me. Sorry to burst your bubble, bro. But not really one of a kind. Fancy yes.

    I mean one of a kind maker. M over an A for Metro Arms. Only the firestorm and Metro Arms 1911's have the hammer like that.
