Rio Grande Custom Grips™ from Brighton, Colorado, has a name that is self-explanatory. They sell grips for various flavors of 1911s, some Ruger models and even knives. They have more than 80 kinds of 1911 grips in stock, and as the name suggests, will also produce custom grips with your own imagery.


Here's what the manufacturer says about their latest offering:

Rio Grande Custom Grips created these new3 Percenter grips for those folks who want to honor and celebrate the history of those who fought in our War of Independence. Three Percenters were the courageous 3 percent of the population who actually took up arms to fight and defeat the British and achieve independence for the United States.

The 3 Percenter image grips are new to the compact-frame 1911s but they are also available for the usual variety of popular revolvers and full-size 1911-type semi-autos.

Made from molded, high-strength specialized polymer, the good looking grips are colorful, tough and durable and, because the images are encased in the polymer, they resist salt, oil, solvent, water impact and abrasion.

Here are some examples of other grips that they make:
