1911 Government Classic Panel

The original Colt Government 1911 model has been duplicated by many other manufacturers and exists under other names including: Full Size, Standard, and Commander.

As a general rule, Altamont 1911 Full Size panels will fit all full size guns made by other manufacturers. You may want to measure the space between screws to make sure you have a Full Size 1911. If your 1911 is 3 1/16" between screws, then it is Full Size. If your 1911 is 2 11/16" between screws, then it is a Compact, Officer, or Defender 1911 and we do offer grips HERE for it.

PURCHASING NOTES: Click "Buy It" to add your grip of choice to the shopping cart. Then click "Customize Your Grips" to see any available add-ons or complementary adjustments for that item. Add-ons may include Medallions, Laser Logos, and Rampant Colts. Complementary adjustments may include Cut for Ambidextrous Safety, Cut for Extended Safety, Magwell Style, or Inlet Screw Hole for Taurus 1911.

You can use your stock screws to install 1911 grips; however, you can also purchase Engraved Screws HERE on the website.

Scrimshaw

Scrimshaw Top Image

BUY IT
1911 Govt. Classic Panel Bonded Ivory with Scroll Scrimshaw on Both Sides and Gold Medallions
Scrimshaw is a particularly American art form. It started with whalers engraving whale ivory on long voyages, but soon was adapted to etch and enhance pistol grips for special guns. Scrimshaw is cut into the grip and then the cuts are inked. This wears well. Usually only the right side of the grips is scrimshawed, especially if the other side will be in the holster, but both sides can be done if desired.

These designs are extensive in the 1911, as illustrated here. However, these designs could also be scrimshawed on other bonded ivory grips. For more designs and ordering guidelines view our Scrimshaw Gallery.
