Let me begin by explaining how I began making 1911 grips. In approximately 2008/09, I had been searching far and wide for a set of grips for myself. After endless searching, I was unable to find a set that I liked and was affordable. After months of experimentation and trial and error I ended up with a couple sets of grips that I was happy with. Now what to do with all the extra material I acquired… the rest is history.

Every set you see on the site has been completely hand made and designed by me. I am always challenging myself to improve my designs and procedures. I take great pride in every set. If I am not completely satisfied with a set I will not sell them. I welcome special orders, drop me an email at zippsgrips@gmail.com and lets talk about your ideas and needs. I welcome your input. I look forward to making you the perfect set. Customer material is also welcomed. Contact me to discuss.

Please note I currently do not work with Mammoth, Antler or Bone. There are plenty of guys out there who do amazing work with these materials.

My number one goal is to provide all customers with an easy and stress free transaction and to provide beautiful grips at an affordable price. Thanks for visiting, I look forward to hearing from you and your future business.
