Inspired by our original Gator Back our 1911 Alien® grips were originally designed for the Precision Weapons Section of the U.S. Marine Corps, but quickly became a favorite as soon as we offered them to retail customers. These grips offer a great blend of form and function, proving a decent amount of bite without being too harsh while looking good on modern and classic 1911s alike. Great for concealed carry, target practice, or even safe queens.

VZ's 1911 grips are designed to fit all of the most popular full-size (Government or Commander) 1911 models from Colt®, Springfield Armory®, Kimber®, Rock Island Armory®, Dan Wesson Firearms®, 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.
