More “Fancy” Grips!

This set were actually made for the Ruger 22/45 .22 semi auto pistol. Unfortunately, I am temporarily without one of those nice guns, but because the grip screw holes and most overall dimensions are the same as a 1911, I gave them a try on my Para 1911 .45ACP.

These grips are actually for a Ruger 22/45 pistol, but will fit on a 1911 - and look pretty darn good!

While I probably won’t replace the Elk antler grips Zane (Lone Star Custom Grips) made for me with these, They do look good as a contrast when the gun is in a different mood – or I am!

Of course, the real reason for these grips being in my possession now is I am actively looking for a Ruger .22 with a suppressed barrel, and a 22/45 is high on the list of possibles.

    Looking at the grips you have shown I started looking for Lone Star Custom Grip/Zane Thompson. His web site is gone and was curious to see if he has stopped making grips? I have a custom Blackhawk about to come home but need grips to match the metal.

  2. MikeH says:

    I had the same result when I tried to log on his site. I sent him an email today, if I don’t hear from him soon I may have to call. I know he was thinking of attending some sort of Ruger “shoot” in the Northwest soon, might be there now.

  3. MikeH says:

    He answered my email this morning, said the site should be back up this week. You might email him at lonestar.custom.grips@gmail.com.

    Thank you. I sent him a message and hope to hear from him. Again thank you.
