Does anyone have some advice on where to purchase very thin 1911 slabs?  I am using sharkskins now.
Are there some that might be a bit skinnier?
Thanks in advance

Alex,

 Brownells sells a couple different brands and styles.

I've seen a set that required shorter grip screw bushings they were so thin.  Thinking they came on a Les Baer gun...

I thought I might need to go with shorter bushings.  Really like the texture of the shark skins.
I'll give Brownells a look.
Thank you

Alex,

 Brownells also sells the short bushing sets,  which I think most thin grips will require.  You can also try the trick of installing a small 3/16 O- ring under the grip screw this may work on some thin grips. 
 I agree on the Shark Skins.  I wish they would come out with a thin set offering.

Try Esmeralda's grips. I believe that is the correct spelling of the name.
From plain to exotic, thick to thin.

The Ruger 22/45 comes with a very thin set of grips. Much thinner then regular grips. I have an extra set around here somewhere.

I have some titanium ones that are the thinnest I’ve been able to find. Less than a tenth of an inch iirc. I can measure them when I get home.
