Magpul 1911 Grip Panels

    Last May TFB reported the Magpul 1911 grips were coming, and thought they are on the market now, I’d yet to handle them. So I took the time to check them out at SHOT Show.

    I like the look of them, though not in love with the tiny Magpul logos as texture, but function is more important. The deep cut for the thumb safety is of special importance to me with my shorter fingers. As the top photo illustrates, these accommodate well in that area.


    The price of the Magpul MOE Grip Panels has dropped five dollars to $19.95 MSRP, since last I checked. At that price I consider these a great low cost option for an improved grip.
