1911 Stag Grips

For full size 1911's only. Officer/Compact grips will not be offered in Stag now or in the future.

Until recently I have focused building ivory grips due to its durability and unique look. Stag while beautiful, often had significant marrow on the back side that prevented it from being a durable 1911 grip and I refuse to sell grips that cannot be left on the pistol while out in the field or on the practice range. Now I have found Red Sambar Stag that is thick enough to produce a durable set of 1911 grips. Stag offers that classic look that many pistols owners love. It's old world look harkens back to the day of WWI and WWII. Listed below is some beautiful full size 1911 grips in Sambar Stag. If you buy a pair from me you are guaranteed that if they ever break I will replace them free. Plain and simple. Thank you for taking an interest in my 1911 grips, Dan

SG048 - Sambar Stag 1911 Grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

MATERIAL: Sambar Stag

PISTOL TYPES: Colt, All Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Uselton, Volkmann, Dan Wesson, Wilson, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for a ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better access to magazine release.

COMMENTS: Grips have a nice brown textured bark, from head to toe, over strong whites and as a result these will look good on a black or blue pistol or even add a whole new look to a stainless. Also perfect for a WWII / 1911A1 period piece. I had been holding off for years doing anything with Stag until I found material solid enough to hold up to every day use. If they should ever break I will replace them for free. Don't forget to click on the picture to see a larger view and how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces pistol.

Check my new menu item "Ivory File". For $3 dollars, this file will keep that gloss and mint condition look on these grips. I even have a video demo on how to use it. So please check it out and tell me what you think. A nice gloss is critical to having Stag grips looking their best and to hold their resale value.

Meets or exceeds all of Kimbers and Colts custom shops specifications. Perfect for a everyday carry pistol or upgrading one of your pistols. Does anyone have just one 1911?

PRICE: $175 SOLD!

SG046 - Traditional Sambar Stag 1911 Grips

MATERIAL: Sambar Stag

PISTOL TYPES: Colt, All Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Uselton, Volkmann, Dan Wesson, Wilson, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for a ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better access to magazine release.

COMMENTS: These are a classic example of stag grips that came from a mature set of antlers. Dark chocolate browns, 3-dimensional whites, and extremely durable, are words that best describe these grips. Could match up well to a jigged bone knife. Nice companion to any black traditional 1911A1 pistol, but also a nice option to give your pistol a whole new look. I had been holding off for years doing anything with Stag until I found material solid enough to hold up to every day use. If they should ever break I will replace them for free.

Fine for every day carry or out at the range. Don't forget to click on the picture to see a larger view of them on my pistol.

About 1911 Pistols

About Mammoth Ivory

The Mammoth Ivory used to manufacture my handmade 1911 Ivory Grips comes from the tusks and teeth of Wooly Mammoths. This unique ivory offers a distinct look and feel. As the last Wooly Mammoth became extinct over 10,000 years ago, the supply of this popular Mammoth Ivory is becoming more and more rare. Therefore, the value of your 1911 Ivory Grips, manufactured from only quality real ivory, will only increase in the years to come.
