The evolution continues with the VZ Operator III™ 1911 grips. After we launched our new VZ Stipple texture it didn't take long before we realized it would pair perfectly with the VZ Slants to create the third iteration of the Operator series. By combining two textures the VZ Operator III™ becomes a much more functional grip than either texture on its own. From concealed carry to the tactical and tournament shooter these grips exceed in all applications.

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

Just like all of our other G-10, Micarta, and Aluminum products, VZ Operator III™ 1911 grips are custom made and hand finished right here in the USA, by Americans, from materials made in America, using machines also made in America.

*Carbon Fiber products are made using a blend of G-10 and Carbon Fiber layers.
