Kimber Micro Carry grip profile/magazines

Bought a base Micro Carry and ordered grips for a Colt Mustang from VZ Grips. Grips are very nice, but unlike the Mustang, the Micro has grip screw bushings instead of tapped holes in the frame. Custom grip makers will have to cut the bushing/grip screw holes in the Micro grips as they do for regular 1911 grips. So don't order custom grips for the Micro until the makers catch up.

At the same time the grips were ordered I ordered three spare Metalform magazines for the Colt Mustang and they work fine and are nicely made. They do not have removable base pads, however.

Thanks for the info. Not surprised the grips didn't fit. Not a whole lot of grips are interchangeable other then 1911's. I am surprised the magazines fit for the same reason. Have you shot your Micro with them yet? Either way we need a range report.

Micro Carry grips are NOT interchangeable with a Colt Mustang.

I'm not sure about using Mustang magazines in a Kimber Micro Carry, I wouldn't bet my life on them working in a life and death situation.

Thanks...SGM I believe is the only one making Micro custom grips as yet. I like the smooth ones so I got the Maple they had. Look good on an all black gun.

I know this is an old thread and this is probably a dumb question, but does this mean that Micro grips will fit on the Mustang, but not the other way around?

If they fit I would love a pair of Micro Crimson Trace grips for my mustang
