    Colt Gunsite Pistol Question

    Can anyone tell me who manufactures the thin grips that are supplied on the Colt Gunsite Pistol?

    There are a dozen variations of the Gunsite pistol. By Colt and several others. Mine has thin Alumagrips but is several years old. I do like the Alumagrips and have them on several other pistols. The grip experts here can probably identify the grips if you post a photo or link.

    I have heard the rosewood checkered grips are the Altamont Slimtech grips. Those look the same as the ones that came on my Gunsite 1911 O1980CGP.

    I talked to the Gunsite Pro Shop last week and asked the same question. They told me the 1911 thin grips pictured on their website are currently made by Herrett.

    What they sell in the pro shop is not the same as what colt supplies on the pistol from the factory. I live not too far from gunsite and have been in the shop a bunch and from even casual inspection in person they are different
