Where can I go to get a nice custom grip for the Springfield 1911.

I contacted ahrendsgrips.com and they didn't have any that would fit the springfield.

Thanks

Is there anything special about your Springfield? I'm surprised Ahrends won't fit your gun. Aside from different sizes (Government, Officer, etc.), 1911 grips should be universal.

Someone just mentioned www.gungrips.net. They have a section for 1911's and clones AND can make you custom ones.

Yeah, I'm gonna have to say VZ, too. I have the etc frags on my ria 1911, and they feel and look great.

I truly don't understand when people are doing this, and sincerely curious... why would you want WC with their logo medallion on a Springfield? Wouldn't that be like putting Ford badges on a Dodge?

This is true.. However, I don't care so much about branding on my pistols because people really don't even see it other than at the range, of course. Plus lots of people put WC parts in their non-wc pistols, so IMO WC logo'd grips are appropriate on any 1911.

edit: looking at the pic that logo does look kinda awkward on there lol... Maybe it's just because you said something about it.

If you didn't know that was the Wilson Combat logo (I didn't) it just looks like a cool badge there. Doesn't look awkward to me.

Wilson Combat is smart enough so of course they'll put their logo on their most successful and prettiest grip pattern. People who don't know, like you, are OK. People who recognize it, like me, just wonder.

ive got 3 pairs of VZ grips so far. 2 sets of black operators 2, and one set of black cherry ops... love the grip texture.

For the folks that want the Starburst grips without the Wilson logo, contact Larry Davidson. I'm not sure if he still makes grips for Wilson Combat but I know he used to a few years ago.

Ahrends won't fit your Springfield? Since when? I have Ahrends on most of my 1911s including several Springfields. What's so different about yours?
This is curious to me.

They're at least as much of a parts manufacturer as they are a 1911 manufacturer. I don't see anything weird with having WC logo grips on a different brand's 1911, as all that signifies to me is that the grips are a WC product.

If I saw a Lone Wolf logo on the barrel of a Glock, I wouldn't assume that the entire gun was LW custom made even though you can basically do that.

If you want some unique grips made of wood or bone, check out www.exoticpistolgrips.com. They go to most of the CA and AZ Gun Shows, too.

I have grips from VZ, Strike Industries and JS Gungrips on my 1911s. I like them all, but the JS Gungrips are probably my favorite.

I misread the email. Ahrends doesnt have the dymondwood grip in blue anymore. just silver and black.
