Although not widely known, Radical Concepts has been providing high-quality OEM private-labeled grips for Model 1911 pistols since 1989. Since then we have produced grips and provided specialized services and products not only for Colt, but also for other makers such as Springfield Armory, Smith & Wesson, Auto Ordnance, Federal Ordnance and several small custom 1911 makers.

Springfield Armory came to us for grips for their then-new Omega 10mm. Below is a view of one of the prototypes of the Omega grips which we provided. All the early Omegas wore Radical Grips with the striking and distinctive Omega medallion. However, Springfield chose our black grips for their production Omega pistols instead of the Coool Blue prototype seen here. We really think that they should have gone with the Coool Blue.

Our early grips featured a sporty and functional pebble-textured surface. However, in 1990 Colt requested us to design a new grip for their upcoming Model 1991A1. Because the Model 1991 was reminiscent of their basic military pistol, we chose the traditional checkering pattern for the new grips which has carried through to our current production panel and wraparound grips.

If you build 1911 pistols on any scale, either production or custom, and need an OEM grip with your private label branding, we can help. We can also produce rubber or polymer grips to your design which would be your exclusive product. The only limitation is your imagination.

There's no question about it that Colt's Model 1911 is the most copied, and by popular demand, the greatest auto-pistol in the world today. No other auto-pistol in history has enjoyed such popularity even after 115 years of continuous production by Colt, and now by its many admirers worldwide.
