The 1911 Compact Bonded Ivory Grips are unadorned imitation ivory. The grips are made in the USA by Altamont Grip Company. Although they don’t show any grain or color variations like genuine ivory, this material is durable and scrimshaws really well.
This is the smaller version of the Government 1911, also referred to as the Compact, Officers, or Defender model. To be sure that you have this smaller version, measure the space between the screw holes. If they measure 2 11/16” you do have a compact 1911. The full-sized government 1911 will measure 3 1/16″ between the screw holes.
These compact 1911 grips are a good way to add personalization and 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. Or maybe you would like the “Deadman’s hand” of cards, or a patriotic eagle would – either would fit nicely on these handles. The design is limited only by your imagination.
I guarantee the fit for most Compact 1911 frames and they are backed up by Altamont’s lifetime guarantee.
