.45 ACP with 55° grip angle?

Post by Amati on Sat Jan 06, 2018 10:06 am

The 1911 standard grip angle doesn't work for me nearly as well as the 55° angle and efforts at custom grips have been futile.

What's out there? Pardini offers a .40 which may have that grip angle but no .45 that I've been able to find.

Thanks.

Pardini also makes a 45 ACP pistol.  Although I haven't seen the specs for the grip angle, from the images it appears that the GT 45 has the same grip angle as the GT 40.

According to the instruction manual the Pardini GT45 has a grip angle of 115 (65 in your method). The 1911 has a grip angle of 105. I’m not sure that ther is another 45 out ther that has a 55 grip angle.

Vitarbo grips change the grip angle. To exactly what I'm not sure.

I too was wary of the GT45 double stack but found that I prefer it to the single stack 1911. The angle and low bore don't hurt either.

I have Rink grips on several 1911 frame guns.  I really like them, but do wish he made them with the adjustable palm shelf.
