View Full Version : Titanium 1911 Grips

Just out of curiosity, does anybody know about Titanium 1911 grips? The reason I ask, is that I was looking to find some, but couldn't come up with any thing in a Google search.

I was bored a couple weeks ago and went down to my machine shop and made some. If you guys are interested in seeing them email me and I'll send pics.

Hey Flork,

I'd like to see a picture. Post it here or send it to robspmc@aol.com.

Please post some pics. How much would you sell them for? I am interested.

I would ask Gary over at Caspain if they can do it.

They have Damascus Steel grips so maybe they have the ability to make you some in Ti.

Couldnt hurt to ask them.

Ti grips?

Flamed as well?

I still havn't finished them, I'm trying to figure out what kind of checkering I want to do and how I want to do it.

As for the flames, I could EDM the flame pattern into the grips, but it would be kind of costly to make the electrode out of 1/2" thick copper, but it would be really F#%&ing cool looking.

I was thinking about using a torch and making the panels a blue color. I'll post a couple samples and show them off. I'm swamped at work this week so won't be able to work on them until next week, but I'll post pics of what I have so far tomorrow night.

Check it out guys. Here they are.

I still have checkering and logos to sinker EDM into the faces but I'll post those later.

Can you show the front of the grips (the link shows the back side view of the pistol)? How thick are they?

I need to take another pic, but I will post that as well. The grips are .340 thick each. I'm a bit of a GLOCK fanatic so I prefer the fatter grip.

I'm planning to make a set of really thin parts for a carry application, I just need to decide how thin. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I have a guy asking me to make a set for a .454 Cassul(I think that's how it's speld), when I get those in production I'll post them as well.
