The 1911 Compact Bonded Ivory Grips are an unadorned ivory imitation. This set of compact grips are made in the USA by Altamont grip Co. These don’t show any grain or color variations like genuine ivory, but this material is durable and scrimshaws really well.
The Compact, Officers or Defender models are a smaller version of the government 1911.
To be sure that you have this smaller version, measure the space between the screw holes. If you measure 2 11/16” you do have a compact 1911. The full-sized government 1911 will measure 3 1/16″ between the screw holes.
I guarantee the fit for most Compact 1911 frames and they are backed up by Altamont’s lifetime guarantee.
Speaking of custom artwork, these compact 1911 grips are the easiest way to add some personalized style to your gun. I’ve etched numerous badges, logos and military insignias over the years, and I’d love to personalize these grips for you. Not into that? The “Deadman’s hand” of cards, or even a patriotic eagle would also fit nicely. I’m limited only by your imagination.
