What monsters lurk beneath the waves? VZ Hydra 1911 grips are here to give you a monstrous grip on your gun for when the multi-headed beasts emerge from the darkness. The deep, undulating texture provides aggressive purchase without being overly sharp. The depth and size of the cuts are also great for showing off the patterns that appear in the layers of the G-10 material, especially in the Burl colors. Great for target practice, competition shooting, and even safe queens.

VZ's 1911 grips are designed to fit all of the most popular compact (Officer’s) 1911 models from Colt®, Springfield Armory®, Kimber®, Les Baer®, Dan Wesson Firearms®, and many more. Ambi-Safety cuts are available for all major types of safeties. If you’re looking for a grip to fit a full-size (Government or Commander) frame, please look here.
