Product Overview

Ascend™ 1911 Scales - CNC machined out of premium G10 material and featuring the same Honeycomb texture as our patented RailScales. We threw out the traditional 1911 grip model and designed Ascend scales to melt into the frame and cover more area, redefining how grips should fit your 1911. Our 1911 hand grips break the 100+ year old grip profile that other companies settle for. While design and innovation has progressed considerably on the 1911, the grip scale area has been left untouched and overlooked. Each set of 1911 grips includes our custom 416 stainless screws that have been heat treated and black oxidized.

If your ambidextrous safety is a "legless" style, like the Nighthawk or Ed Brown, you may run the Single Safety option. If your ambidextrous safety has a "leg," you need the Ambidextrous option.

FitmentBecause of the additional frame coverage, our 1911 slim grips ride very close to the front and rear of the frame. Due to the frame and front strap texturing variations from every manufacturer, there is a small possibility our grips may slightly over hang. If this occurs, you may return them for a full refund. Our magwell cut is a hybrid of a flat bottom and chamfer, allowing for a great look whether you are using a magwell or not. They will match Nighthawk mainspring housing magwells perfectly.

Ambi Safety model: Due to the numerous makes and versions of ambi-safeties on the market, minor fitment may be required for proper operation. This can be done with a file or sandpaper, then re-oil with WD40 to bring the G10 back to a rich black.

    This is how 1911 grips should have been made from the start. Just feels great in the hand. Texture is awesome. Machining perfect. If the interface between your hand and the pistol is your primary concern, can’t recommend these grips enough.

    No fitting required. Fit and finish was superb. I also liked the fact that they included a quality audit checklist in the box as well. Speaks volumes to their craftsmanship. I got the honeycomb pattern, and it feels as good as it looks. Very nice addition to my pistol. Thanks guys! Happy customer.

    Ambi cut fits very well on a springfield armory operator. I wish there was a small relief cut on the left side for the magazine release, other than that they're perfect.

    Ok so yes $100+, however they are legit. I thought they were gonna cheese grate my hands but that was not the case. They are comfortable and help you grip that .45 kick. Works great and look amazing. I've gotten comps about them asking where I got them. They have a tight fit for my kimber custom 2 but no issues. I just wish they came in different colors. You won't regret buying these. Get em rn before outta stock lol
