The VZ ETC (Elite Tactical Carry) 1911 grips are our first grip designed specifically for concealed carry. We put our aggressive diamond texture where you need it most, at the palm and fingers, but left everything else smooth. No more cheese grater effect on your skin or shirts when you carry. Aside from being incredibly function, their simplicity makes them rather visual appealing too.

VZ's 1911 grips are designed to fit all of the most popular compact (Officer’s) 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 full-size (Government or Commander) frame, please look here.
