I kinda got off on the wrong foot last night in the wrong section trying to start this GREAT IDEA, so I will give it another go, this time in the right section. Bear with me on this . . . . . . it is a new concept for all. I am sure there will be a few small hiccups, but the intent is for this to be a fun way to expand your "shoe collection" for your gats. After all, 1911's are just like "Barbies, only for MEN . . . . " ___________________________________________________________________ ADDICTS, Thought I would try something different, and this is open to EVERYONE. I was looking for a specific pair of grips in my parts drawer and came to the realization that I have waaaay too many pairs of grips that are just sitting in a drawer not getting used. Rather than trying to just sell them off, I thought it might be fun to do a grip exchange. I might have something that you just "gotta have" and you might have something I never even considered. Let's trade . . . . . ! Everyone is free to join in the fun. How it works: Post up the grips you are looking to trade with a short description of what you would be willing to trade for. "Values" shouldn't be needed as it will be subjective for each pair of grips. You do need to post a description of what type of grip(s) you would be most likely to trade for. Each set / type of grips you offer up for trade should be listed in a separate post in this thread. Each set of grips for trade should have clear photos of both the front AND back, as well as answers to most of the following: What make / size gun do they fit? What material are they made of? To the best of your knowledge, who made them? Are there specialty features (magwell cut, ambi-cut, bevel / flat bottom, covered pin)? Is there any unseen damage / are there any fit issues? If you are interested in a set of grips that are up for trade, PM the original poster of the grips in question. Work out a trade equitable to both (this can include cash if needed). If a deal cannot be made for a swap for your grips, post yours up for others to consider. Each party pays their own shipping unless geography makes a face-to-face trade an option. To help make this a bit more affordable for y'all, here is a link on how to ship on the CHEAP . . . . . https://www.1911addicts.com/threads/shipping-with-tracking-on-the-cheap-zoids-psa.63489/#post-96492 Once a pair of grips has been traded, delete your original post from the thread (this is just good housekeeping). Swaps don't have to be one-for-one. We're all (mostly) adults. As stated before, the swaps can include cash or other objects of value, just keep those details the PM's. My intent isn't to start a "Fer Sail" free-for-all, but rather an interesting thread of exchange. To keep things clean and simple, we will not be doing site feedbacks for these trades. Everyone knows who the good apples and scoundrels are. Y'all know you've got multiple sets of grips laying around that need new homes, and I am sure someone is looking for THAT exact set. I'll post my first set up next. AND REMEBER Gents: All the rules and guidelines of the Classifieds section must be adhered to. Let's keep it on the rails so we don't lose this opportunity.
