    Blow up the pic - maker's mark is Briley.

    Yessir. Briley was one of my customers before I retired, and they had a LOT of talent inside those walls - this one was the brainchild of Claudio Salassa, who started Briley's Pistol Division. I got to meet and talk with him a few times over the years - he's damned good at 1911's.

    The Ruger Redhawk has rosewood grips but I replaced them with old original Pachmayr grips. What a difference in felt recoil. I don't know if they still make any thick Pacmayr grips like that any longer.

    The Remington R1 1911 has upgraded OEM grips with the Remington Logo. They were a gift from my son.

    The Hogue grips on the S&W Model 17-3 are original on that revolver from the S&W factory (technically not OEM relative to the gun but certainly stock grips as the gun came from the factory).
