    I have a colt .38 super off at Mr. Chamber's currently and when it comes back it will be a new man.

    I am already spending the money on what will be my last custom 1911 for a while (first kid on the way!) and I want to get it right. "Getting it right" means a set of wicked awesome grips, and who best to make a set of wicked awesome grips other than..Wicked grips. Since Mr. Strange and Co. are very busy I wanted to hash out all the details before bothering them. Below are 2 sets of his grips that I particularly like. What color scheme do you think looks better.

    This will be the base color scheme, but I would like to commision an ingraved or enlayed set that has an eagle on them. Maybe something like this but classier because Wicked grips will be designing/making it:

    I like light grips on a dark gun myself. So the middle set looks really good to me.

    Unless you are going all blacked out... but that did not seem like your goal :p

    Should be a very cool gun!

    No Im going Blues most likely. I originally thought NP3, but decided to stick with blue for a more classic look.

    Ironwood set on top would be my choice, but you really can't go wrong.

    I love ironwood. But no matter what you choose, if they come from Ed they will be amazing.
