    These are Thai grips. The fit is pretty good but not perfect. I also have a set that replicates the shape/checkering of 1950s Colt targets, but are too red and need staining/lacquering.

    I own a couple of pair. I agree that the medallions, whether Colt or S&W look cheap and are probably plastic. Both of these sets fit the grip frame tightly, but both needed just a minute or two with some 400, then 600 and 800 grit sandpaper around the seam to get the two halves level with each other. No big deal and well worth the cost. Shipping was only a couple of weeks if I recall.
    I also used some Birchwood Casey Brass Black on the screws and escutcheons after this pic was taken. Be aware that the screw supplied is soft brass and can deform easily, choose your screwdriver well.

    I've got one set which I like a lot. Mine have really nice wood.

    The only problem with mine is that there a bit of roughness where the grip meets the trigger guard. One day I'll just smooth it out.

    I asked my vendor to include an extra pair of silver Colt medallions.
    They are not plastic. Although other shops may use alternate materials.

    I bought by a nice set of buffalo bone stocks for a 1911. Fit was nice. Medallions were bad fakes. Replaced the medallions. Very satisfied. Bought a set of wood stocks for a Hi Power. Satisfied with them also.

    I like these a lot. The wood grain and overall appearance is great.

    nice thing too is if you carry the gun and scratch or ding up the grip, it's not a big deal. jim

    y2k, I have several older Colts, but I really like my blue OMS .22. I notice two of yours have the target hammer. Did you install the hammers, did they come this way or was it a factory option? Usually they have hammers like the first one in your picture.
    Not my intention to hijack the thread, but anyone with three OMS must know something about the gun.
