Tapco 1911 Grips


The latest member of the Freedom Group announced a new series of 1911 grips at the recent SHOT Show in Las Vegas.  Tapco is releasing several new grips for the venerable old pistol in their TimberSmith line.


The grips are made of an engineered wooden laminate, and will come in a variety of styles and color combinations.  Being an engineered wood laminate, the grips are much more resistant to water.


All of the grips can be had in rosewood, walnut or black.  All of the grips carry an MSRP of $39.99.


“The Veteran” has an appearance that resembles the styling of the original M1911 pistols.  Three other styles are available:  The Laredo, The Trooper and The Lariat.

    Wow, they look pretty good. And variety too.

    Nice but I like my CT laser grips LOL!

    I’ll stick with the Hogues my Sig Scorpian came with, but maybe ill put these on my .22 1911.

    If someone is so concerned about grips that are impervious to water why not just get an artificial option like Hogue. I like my G10’s but even their rubber options work well when wet; at least in my experience.

    Is this purely an aesthetics thing? I have a “pretty” 1911 and can understand buying something for looks but that’s not the gun I carry around or keep in my bedside table.
