Crimson Trace Carbon-Fiber Grips

If you're looking for a particularly snazzy way to dress up your favorite 1911, consider Crimson Trace's carbon-fiber finished laser grips. Not only do the grips look great, they can provide an added edge in low light or when shooting from difficult positions. They also make an excellent training tool.

Available in two sizes that cover the majority of 1911 frames, the grips feature the standard Crimson Trace laser setup: instinctive activation via a rubber front pressure switch, windage and elevation adjustments, and a master on/off switch. The Class III laser has the maximum output allowed by federal law and produces a 0.5-inch aiming point at 50 feet. The laser adjusts easily for point of impact with the provided Allen key and holds zero once adjusted.


I mounted a set on my Nighthawk Custom T3 1911. Consistent with my past experience with Crimson Trace's products, the grips are top-notch quality--fitting snugly and even with all edges. The grips were easy to install: simply remove the existing grips; insert the two provided 2032 lithium batteries into the grip orifices; put the grips in place with the pressure pad just beneath the trigger guard; and attach them with the original factory screws.{ $359. 800-442-2406 }
