VZ's Diamond Back 1911 grips come with a big ol' nasty 5 dpi (diamonds per inch) texture that packs a lot of bite. It's a classic look without sacrificing any function. In addition to our usual G-10, these are also available in old-school Micarta (Green Canvas and Green Black Linen) for a slightly softer feel. We won't recommend them for every day carry, but some people do and swear by them.

VZ's 1911 grips are designed to fit all of the most popular full-size (Government or Commander) 1911 models from Colt®, Springfield Armory®, Wilson Combat®, Smith & Wesson®, 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 compact (Officer’s) frame, please look here.
