Pachmayr announced the introduction of American Legend grips in a variety of colors for the 1911-style pistol.  The new grips combine laminate wood with rubber inserts to achieve enhanced “looks and handling” according to Pachmayr.

    That Silvertone grey one looks really nice on a their displayed 1911

    I wish they’d make these without finger grooves. The thin piece of rubber that covers the front strap on Pachmayr’s other 1911 grips would be good for this.

    I like the green (zombie!! ok, j/k. but it does look nice)
    and the silvertone is great with the SS.
