Old Colt 1911

The electroless nickel Government has been wearing these Blue/Black grips for a pretty long time, may be time for a swap.
Do the real Ivory grips look ok on the nickel? Going to leave them on awhile and see how it goes.

That seems like a pretty expensive "crash test."

Do you have any plastic grips in the same size with identically placed screw holes to see if part of the grip chips out?

No "crash test" here, not even sure I understand what you mean, anyway. Yes, I have fake Ivory G10 full size grips.
The real Ivory and Buffalo Bone grips NEVER go to the range, they are just for showing off. If that's what your wondering about?
