When you are looking for the best gift for an avid shooter, there is no better gift than a set of quality 1911 wood grips. These fine-looking, high-performance grips give a nice upgrade to your Remington Model 1911 R1, or other 1911 style pistol. Giving you increased comfort and accuracy, these Remington 1911 wooden grips feature the classic two-piece checkering and diamond design with the famed “Remington” logo inlaid on the grip.
One thing that is different about Remington’s newer models is that they do not use traditional full-length safety serrations on the knives. Instead, Reman handguards replace them -or obliquely slant toward the butt of the gun. This makes for a much more comfortable grip. In fact, some experienced shooters prefer the oblique angle for many reasons. Most notable is the ability to place hands lower to the gun, which can lead to less fatigue. Also, this slanting design allows the sight picture to be better, resulting in a more stable shooting platform.
If you are looking for a new sidearm to replace your current one, Remington’s newest models offer many features that make them ideal for any avid shooter. They are chambered in the popular pistol cartridge, making them compatible with most pistol models and brands, including Smith & Wesson, manufacturers of the M&P line of handguns. They are also compatible with most conversion devices available, such as red dot sights, laser sights and gas tube sights. However, if you do not want conversion equipment, the 1911 wood grips features a pistol grip with a straight hold, making it the perfect model to shoot while you are at your regular indoor shooting range.
The magazine release on Remanufactured grips is a single action button located in the front left hand corner of the trigger. It is easily accessible for right or left handed people and features the Remanufactured magazine grip’s unique vertical lines. Magazine clips also include an integral magazine latch, ensuring that they do not slip out of your hands. Some models have a magazine feed ramp, which can be used to add extra magazines as needed. The magazine lock features a safety lock with key, preventing accidental releases of the magazine.
Other features include texturing on the frame, including raised dots and textured areas on the sides. There is also blacked out gripping surfaces on all three surfaces of the grips, ensuring the highest level of concealment possible. All Remanufactured grips come with a hard carrying handle, making them ideal for quick draw use. The grips include an optional two-position buttstock, which can be changed with different buttocks based on your needs.
