VZ's Simonich Gunner 1911 grips are the original design from world renowned knife maker, Rob Simonich. The same design that was selected for use by the United State States Marine Corps Special Operations Command Detachment One (DET ONE). After Rob's passing in 2013 his wife Christine came to us to continue manufacture his design, and until this day we pay royalties to her and are the only company that has authorization to duplicate his design.

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