Looking for new grips, any suggestions?

I am looking for places that sell good quality grips. I would like to replace the Rosewood ones that came on my Ultra CDP. Thanks in advance!!

As bhunted said, need a little more detail. Wood grips, G10 grips, aggressive, smooth, medium texture, fancy, etc...All sorts to choose from. What exactly do you have in mind? Your intended use could factor into it as well.

It is a vague question but VZ, Altamont, Raasco and Fusion Firearms are a few that come to mind.

Not sure yet, just don't like the look of the Rosewood at all..

Gotcha...JC45 named good places to look. I’ll also add SGM grips, Stoner CNC grips, Coolhand grips, and Hogue grips to name a few more. If you like wood grips, just not the ones that you have, Challis Grips have some VERY nice ones.

I would check the places JC and 46Q have posted. You can Google 1911 grips and get 1000's to chose from.

I ordered mine from Brownell's. They are G10, can't remember the brand, but they were "lightspeed pattern", remember that as was an unusual name, lol. What I love about them is that they aren't real aggressive, but just feel like real fine sandpaper, good grip and very comfortable. Those are on my Kimber Stainless Target II. It came with fairly nice rosewood grips, but I just didn't care for the looks of them.
