Warning: Kim Son Craft

Ordered 1911 grips in 2016, they took my money, strung me along for a long while asking for time to complete the order. Finally this month they said they could not or would not make them. Offered a feeble substitute. I finally asked for my money back. I am not holding my breath until the refund comes through, considering this transaction began in one presidential administration and is now in another, yet to be fulfilled.

Too bad, as the grips I waited patiently for were pretty nifty: polished black buffalo horn with an inlay of mother of pearl in the shape of a chi-rho. The substitute they offered had some sort of inlay in the silhouette of a nude woman. If you are picturing mudflaps on a semi, you have nailed it.

I bought a set of Roosevelt Elk Stag grips from Mike Palmertree at He makes them to order, and it took a little bit of time (a month or two) but he is extremely professional, and my 1911 now looks beautiful (atleast to me ). Picture of 1911

The websites don't have anything gun related now, at all.
