Magpul Announces 1911 Grip Panels


Inspired by Magpul Dynamics, the 1911 Grip Panels offer a combination of advanced features, improved control characteristics, and Magpul value. Constructed of carbon-reinforced polymer, the grips have a unique diamond-shaped cross-section to prevent twisting in the hand, an aggressive magazine release cut-out, aggressive texture for positive control, and are compatible with ambidextrous safeties. The grips are designed to fit full size framed 1911s with standard grip screw bushings. Available in dark carbon gray only, with additional fitments and materials coming.

    Almost immediately after being announced on Magpul’s website, someone asked: “Hey, what about lefties?!” which lead to the post comment thread blowing up with other left handed shooters.
    As of yet, MAGPUL has yet to respond.
    I think they ran into a “Oh, crap…we forgot about southpaws!” moment.
    We’ll see. I emailed them as well.

      No we didn’t. They’re just like any of the other scalloped 1911 grips in that respect…we didn’t scallop them on the right panel for lefties because there isn’t a mag release there.

    They work great for lefties. The cutout is to reach the mag catch, not a thumb shelf. Thumb should ride on the safety. There is less of an advantage in reaching the mag catch for lefties, since you’re doing it with the index finger anyway, but everything we make is meant to run ambidextrous, as we shoot from both sides. The panels are relieved for ambidextrous safeties. We’ve answered this in multiple places…not sure where you’re referring to, but we’ll jump on and clarify where we can.
