New grips

I just ordered a set of Rosewood grips for my Ultra Carry. They should be here by Friday and I will post up a pic or two. If they are as good as they look and the maker/builder is as good as he sounds, they should be a great addition to the gun.
How about we post up some pics of the grips we have added to our guns? I can't believe I am the only one that likes to add a bit of class and personality to my guns.
Attached is a set I recently added to one of my Brownings.

I received permission from the maker to post his advertising photo of the grips I bought

I switched out the original panels with these Sambar Stag's I found on eBay. They were not made for the bobtail handle so I modified them easily enough with my drill press, sanding wheel and finally some 600 grit.

They look great against that black gun. I had considered bone but finally settled for the wood. You did a nice job of fitting them to your model.

I just bought a Kimber Ultra CDP II and while it hasn't arrived yet, I know I want to change out the wood toned grips. What size grip do the ULTRA's take? Any help would be appreciated.

The Ultra CDP II is listed as an 8 round magazine. That would be the full size grips.

Not all Kimbers, but all 1911's.

Is this the general consensus? My 9mm comes with a 7 round mag. Maybe the description of my gun at the auction site was wrong about the 7 round mag?
