Colt and VZ Grips joined forces to create the Colt Signature Series, a genuine OEM G10 grips line designed for Colt’s prolific 1911 platform pistols.

The Signature Series G10 grips come in the Double Diamond pattern for Colt Government Model size 1911 pistols. Consumers have a few colors to choose from including black, black and blue, black and cherry or black and grey.

Colt says the association with VZ Grips was an obvious one as the company produces quality grips that offer a snazzy look for the 1911 platform.

“We couldn’t be prouder of our association with VZ Grips,” Justin Baldini, Product Director for Colt, said in a press release. “VZ Grips has established themselves and one of the premier G10 grips manufacturers in the industry, and their quality and toughness is a perfect fit for Colt. 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. We listened, and now we can anyone who’s looking for an excellent, duty-grade option for their Colt 1911 platform pistol, need look no further than VZ Grips’ Colt Signature Series.”

VZ Grips said that when Colt approached them to craft the next generation of Colt grips, the accessory maker jumped on the opportunity to work alongside the legendary gun manufacturer.

“All of our products are made right here in the USA, so working with Colt is a great fit for us,” John VanZyck, President of VZ Grips Custom Gun Grips, said in a statement. 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.”

The medium textured Colt Signature Series grips are available from VZ Grips with a price tag of $69.
