Recover CC3 Grip & Rail System Now Shipping

Recover

Recover Tactical is now shipping the Grip & Rail System for the 1911-style handguns.

Recover

If you are not familiar with the product, the system is a grip replacement for the standard 1911-type pistol.  Instead of only providing new grip panels, the product also adds a Picatinny rail to the gun.  This allows standard 1911 owners the ability to easily add a white light or laser.

The Grip & Rail System is made of polymer and can be had in black, olive drab or desert sand colors.

MSRP is $49.99.  The company offers free shipping and a lifetime warranty.

    Light yes, laser no. I bought a pair of these grips about 3 months ago (preproduction Shia) slapped them on a citadel 1911. Originally I planned to use a rail master on it but it turns out the way the grips are cantilevered off the frame it’s impossible to keep zero. A TLR-1 works great though. Just my 2¢ buy a new 1911 if you want a laser or the CT lasergrips. Well made and comfortable focus makes a holster compatible.

      Mine keeps 0 perfectly (Gold Cup), put over 300 rounds through the gun so far without issue using a TLR 2.

    Fobus sorry

  • Gregory Markle

    I received my pre-production grips in January and it’s a great product. I agree with lewis that they aren’t stable enough to mount a laser but it works great for a light and brought my old cobbled together Franken1911 (WWII Colt slide, Caspian frame, CrimsonTrace grips, various parts, with some love from pistolsmith Jim Garthwaite) into this century!

      Any chance some epoxy bedding might help that?

      Not as an adhesive (you’d still want to use release agent on the frame) but to snug the rail extension portion to the frame and reduce any potential for movement.

  • Mark D.

    I didn’t have a problem holding 0 on my 1911 Gold Cup. I needed to fiddle with it and adjust a little, but held on their better than any other rail addition I ever used.

  • Andrey Martim

    I liked the design of the panels… I pictured one of these on a original M1911 in my head…

  • Pete Sheppard

    Nice, original USEFUL thinking! I can easily see this on my Combat Commander!

    • hatpow

      They have a pre preduction model for a Beretta.

      • Pete Sheppard

        Do you know if it will fit a Taurus PT-92?

  • gunslinger

    I really like this idea. I’m not a fan of the rails on pistols, so my 1911 won’t have them standard. however in the future, it’ll be nice if i decide i want to add a light/laser i can without having to get a new gun.

  • Nicholas C

    I am curious how strong the rail is. It doesnt seem to secure onto anything. So if you have a weapon light and pull down, wont it possibly stress the polymer?

    • Giolli Joker

      The two halves are kept closed by screws in front of the trigger guard and under the dustcover… I believe that if the fit is a bit loose, you can increase the friction with the frame with some shimming of your choice.

    Novac will install their add-on rail for a little less than $100 more. I want to try this product and save some money but i don’t see any holster compatibility in the rear future.

      I said earlier:

      “Like the idea. Like the !911 platform.

      What I would really like to see is some type of streamlined aftermarket picatinny rail (probably in aluminum) that would be machined to fit the contours of the 1911 frame ahead of the trigger guard, This would have two holes, corresponding holes in the frame would need to be drilled and tapped. This would allow retention of my beautiful wood 1911 grips.”

      I will have to investigate the Novack product but that price point is not attractive. CDNN can sell those Target Sports universal picatinny rails etc for $20 bucks and change. What is so different about what I want?

  • Al

    Interesting idea, but I stay away from 1911 grips that don’t have a lip support to assist in retaining the plunger tube.

  • Tomaso

    Nice idea…and some thoughts. Why not make one with intergrated light, I understand why a laser wouldn’t work….but I’d prefer one that housed a 60 to 100 lum light possibly with the rail under it. I’m getting tired of the “add on ” look.

    Also not being a 1911 guy, why isn’t the rail run to the muzzle?

    • Cymond

      The rail does not run to the muzzle because the steel dustcover doesn’t. Also, the longer rail would mean more leverage pulling down and stressing the polymer.

      As you can see, the dustcover on a standard 1911 does not extend to the muzzle. Why? My guess is that it just wasn’t necessary, and since it’s machined from a block of steel, making the frame longer would mean a bigger block of steel and more time cutting it.

  • WeaponBuilder

    I got in on the 2nd production run in February. Honestly, I love it.

    It radically changes the feel of the 1911, it’s thicker, I like the mag release cuts in the grip, the ability to mount a light for use as a nightstand gun is nice, and it carries well & discretely with a VersaCarry 5″ clip holster for IWB.

    It is nice here in the frozen North Dakota ice prairies of winter, so your hands don’t freeze to your gun like a tongue to a flagpole too!

    People spend $80+ on wood grips that will splinter & injure them if the gun KB’s, but they think this is a waste of $$… I think it is a great product at the correct price point, and I would recommend it to anybody that wants to try something new

    I am not interested in any type of weapons, especially in guns. But The company offers free shipping and a lifetime warranty. In just $49.99. So automatically I am interested in This gun :P
