Flag Grips: Just in Case the 1911 wasn’t American Enough

dsc_0174_2_1

I cannot imagine what John Moses Browning thought what accessories his ubiquitous design would spawn. But, I would imagine he would be patriotic and agree that Strike Industries 1911 Polymer Extreme Flat Pattern grips would be a worthy addition to the .45 handgun.

    Just how do you attach them, duct tape?

    • Zachary marrs

      It attaches to your 1911 using the power of liberty and bald eagle tears

    • Given that standard bushings won’t work, that only leaves the option of slimline screws in slimline bushings. Standard screws in silmline bushings would no doubt protrude into the magazine well.

  • SD3

    Lemme guess: $980? (gun is extra)

    • Jerry

      You read? $15.95

  • That pistol isn’t complete without an eagle etched into the slide.

    • SD3

      Eagle is extra.
