Colt, original manufacturer of the worlds most prolific pistol platform—the 1911, has announced it's partnership with VZ Grips Custom Gun Grips to create the Colt Signature Series line of genuine OEM G10 grips for Colt's legendary 1911 platform pistols.

"Some folks may have noticed that nearly all of our new-model pistols have come with Colt-branded G10 grips, including our Colt Competition Pistol and Colt Combat Unit Rail Gun, and many have asked for them on the aftermarket," said Justin Baldini, product director for Colt.  

"When Colt approached us to develop the next chapter in Colt pistol grips, I was excited," said John VanZyck, president of VZ Grips Custom Gun Grips. "All of our products are made right here in the USA, so working with Colt is a great fit for us. We share Colt's commitment to quality and performance in the harshest environments, so to be able to incorporate our passion for making the best pistol grips into Colt's legendary history is a great opportunity for us."

Colt Signature Series G10 grips are available in the Double Diamond pattern for Colt Government Model size 1911 platform pistols in the following colors: Black, Black & Blue, Black & Cherry, or Black & Gray, and have an MSRP of $69.
