LOKING FOR 70ies BULLSEYE ROPER 1911 GRIPS
I'd like to find a pair of Roper 1911 grips for Bullseye shooting.
Can anyone send me in the right direction?
I have been watching ebay, GunsAmerica and Gun Broker etc.

You might contact Harrett Stocks and see if they make them.
Looks like the only "Roper" they have on their website is for revolvers though.
I cannot find any pictures of Ropers for bullseye shooting, so I'm guessing they are more of a classic bullseye grip.
Just a suggestion, but a lot of things have changed since such stocks were first introduced all those years ago. Why not instead get a modern European style wrap-around grip for the M1911?
Such as the Vitarbo:
There are probably two or three other makers of similar grips. My wadcutter gun wears Morinis and they just blow old-fashioned grip panels clean out of the water.
Once you've got your sights adjusted to the ammunition you have, step away from the bench. In competition or the field...there are no benches.
