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.

    1911 MiniDot Grips

    Posted by Tyler Norha on Feb 1st 2021

    Absolutely love these!!! I have the mlok scales on my Marlin 336 dark series with the Midwest Industries hand guard and they feel awesome. So it was a no brainer that I needed them for my 1911.

    I've owned a few different sets of g10 grips. These are by far the best. You get what you pay for!

    stellar fit and finish

    I bought these for my SA MC Operator and I couldn't be happier. The the pistol feels great in my hand and the grip is just enough without being too abrasive. You could definitely conceal carry the pistol with grips and it wouldn't rub you raw. They also look great on the pistol. I would definitely buy again in the future.

    Been eyeing these for a while. Finally grabbed a set. No fitment issues with the ambi-safety. But they interfered with my extended slide release, nothing a little 180 grit and wd-40 couldn't fix, can't even tell. Excited to get them out to the range this weekend.
