TECHWELL: Aluminium Inlaid Tape Grips


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have experinece with these grips(http://techwearusa.com/product/grips-only-slotted-for-techwell-aluminium-inlaid-tape/)? I am considering purchasing a pair and one of their magwells. My main concern is the thickness. I have searched quite a bit but have not been able to find how thick these are. I personally like thin grips and the other grips I was considering is the Hogue aluminum 3/16th checkered grips. I personally like grip tape and feel like it gives me a better grip/friction than most checkering. Any input or alternatives would be greatly appreciated.

m91196: Thanks alot! I think I'm going to go with them. I am currently using the Magpul 1911 grips but they are just too slippery for me. I tried a buddies checked grips and it still didn't give as good of a hold as grip tape. When I can afford a 2011 I am going to get one for limited, but thats a ways off. In the mean time if I can get used to the thicker style 1911 then it should be positive training towards both now.

My grip measures 1.260 in the middle, sorry didn't want to take them off.

I think they are great but I also run a 2011.


Did they add any noticeable thickness to the gun? I have a Techwell Magwell and am looking for a little more girth.


It's a bit rounder feeling then a 1911 with regular wood grips but it's no fatter.
