    Up for grabs is a set of original Challis Grips made from Desert Ironwood Burl. Brian Challis is IMO the GOAT EVER of 1911 grips. Sadly, he is out of the grip making business. Absolutely NOT accepting new orders these days. The cut, finish, and fitment of these grips is as fine as it...

    Good afternoon everyone, I was going to make an intro post about me buying my first 1911 (which I will do later!), but I wanted to make that post with the new VZ grips I ordered the day I got this handgun.

    Hi all, What are your favorite sources for exotic 1911 grips? Challis Grips makes some absolutely gorgeous grips. I am a huge fan of their Mammoth Tooth grips but at $1200, they are quite expensive. Is this a reasonable price for such exquisite grips or are there other for affordable options...

    After putting close to 500 trouble-free rounds down range, I did a field strip, check and clean on my Chambers 1911 University pistol. No problems so I thought I would dress it up a little, a pair of Challis Cut Red Morel grips, that I had purchased several years ago for an Ed Brown Kobra and a...

    Guys, ever since the Addicts gods smiled on me and I won NEA's Challis grips giveaway, I have been literally losing sleep over the decision on which way to go with a set of Challis grips. I know a few of y'all have some of Brian's work, so I thought I would start a photo thread for y'all to...

    I was fortunate to win last year's Challis Grips / Bushings giveaway. Shawn and Brian were a pleasure to work with and I can't thank them enough! Attached are a few pics. My photography skills (or lack there of) don't do the grips justice. They look fantastic! Can't decide if I like them...

    Well after buying a few sets of thin VZ grips from a forum member, I had plans to swap out my NHC Bob Marvel and Baer Recon grips. Last Tuesday after picking up the Recon from my FFL, I went home to start the Grip swap. I ordered Thin Fully Machined Grip bushings and screws from Nighthawk...
