"I just got those Spalted Maple grips I ordered, and I have to say, they are definitely a couple of the prettiest pieces of wood I have seen. They absolutely transformed this 1911! All the work I put into this pistol is dwarfed by how amazing those grips look on it! You did a fantastic job and I appreciate it very much. I'll definitely be doing more business with you in the future and referring my 1911 guys to your work."
- Logan M., Gunsmith
" You've developed a stabilization and color and figure highlighting process that is head shoulders over other exotic wood grip makers, not to mention your finish processes, especially your unique “in-house” high-gloss finish. Unique and as much art as it is craft."
- Richard N.
"The grips arrived ahead of schedule on Saturday. They look even better on the gun than in the pictures. They fit perfectly. Thanks again for your help."
- Bill S.

"I recently ordered three pair of your custom grips for various 1911s that I own and today I received the first two pair. After a brief examination I must say that when it comes to grips for a 1911 the old adage "You get what you pay for" has never been more true! These are some of the highest quality, most beautiful grips that I have ever seen let alone owned and fitment was perfect! Thank you for providing such an exceptional product for what I believe to be a very fair price!"

"I just received the two tone amboyna burl grips I ordered and have to say that they are truly fantastic! The fit and finish is remarkable and the orange really sets off the parkerized finish of the gun. The grips are truly works of art."

Will definitely be doing business with Adam again! The fit and finish of these grips exceeded any and all expectations."
- Klickmania from 1911 Forum
"I received the grips yesterday and they are beautiful! I'm not yet sure where exactly what pistol they are going to be used on but they will be used. I'll constantly be browsing your site for more beauty's like this pair. Thanks for a great pair of grips at a great price, have a great day!"

"Got the grips today-they are just gorgeous!So nice, that i'm thinking of ordering one more pair for my last 1911."
- Bruce S.
"I received my grips this afternoon. Thank you for the outstanding service and astounding turnaround time. Only a total of 8 days from my choosing the wood sample, which you did not even have in stock, to receipt of the finished grips. The craftsmanship is superb. Even my outlandish choice of wood didn't deter you from bringing out more depth, pattern and color variance than was obvious to my eye when I choose the scales. I was OK with the bright neon turquoise colored sample photo but am very pleased with the "movement" of the grain, deeper coloring and even the more "blueish" color of the finished product. Chalk me up as a very satisfied second time customer."
- Lance F.
"I absolutely love them!"
- Tony K.
"The Ironwood Burl grips are beautiful. Perfect fit and they look great on my Stainless Springfield Trophy Match. Thanks for the high quality product and the fast service. Looking forward to the box elder ones now."
- Charles M.
"My grips arrived this afternoon and they are MAGNIFICENT! As beautifully detailed and artistic as your photos are, the perfection of seeing and holding the actual grip is beyond comparison. WOW!!!!"
- Lance F.
"WOW! Thanks for the great service Adam. I've looked at hundreds of exotic wood grips during the last several days and yours, without doubt, are unparalleled for beauty. Your Photo Gallery is amazing. Your work is superb and your "eye" for choosing the wood and getting the most from the nuances of the grain is the work of a genuine artist. This will not be the last set of grips I purchase from you. Thanks again for acknowledging my order and notification of the super fast shipping."
- Lance F.
"Just to let you know that I got the new grips and they look great!! Thanks again."
- Jose G.
I ordered a set of your Fiddleback maple and your Snakewood grips, and I just wanted to say I'm extremely impressed with your work. I have the set of snakewood grips on a 1926 Colt sistema, and they look amazing on the parkerized finish. I'm still deciding which pistol I need to put the maple grips on. But eventually I'll get some pictures up and give you some free advertising.
Thanks again for your masterful work, I look forward to doing business in the future."
- Lcpl Grannon, B.A.
"I tried the grips on my pistol and they fit perfectly. I must also add they they looked amazing on my blue Colt 1980XSE. Really, really nice. But I expected that after seeing the pictures on your site. You do fantastic work."
- Gary J.
"At first I had my doubts as to how it would look on my Springfield TRP with armory kote (black/blue finish). Then I put them on the gun. Oh my God, what beautiful contrast. The subtle differences between the two (grip color and gun finish) made it a absolute classic. The Maple burl grips I got from you make the gun not only so much more better looking, but a lot more pleasant to shoot."
- Yo Y.

- Yo Y.
"Grips arrived yesterday. THEY ARE PERFECT for my old 1911. I am glad I went with the english walnut instead of the manzanita.The english walnut is fancy but not too fancy. I had to wait to get out of work before placing them on the 1911. Long day of torture ;)"
- Steve H.

"Wanted to let you know the grips arrived in the mail just fine today. Both pairs look excellent. One is already on my Ed Brown Executive Carry. The other is waiting the arrival of my Ed Brown Special Forces in about 2-3 weeks. I can't see how someone can do such an outstanding job on a "piece of wood"
as you did on the two Desert Ironwood slabs. You've gota be a real artist"

"Your grips look astounding on my Colt 1911. Let me know what you think and please feel free to use them on your website."
"...the amboyna grips are ...FANTASTIC!!! They are without a doubt the best grips I have ever seen."
"Sir, my hat is off to you! I received the grips today and I must say they certainly exceed even what I had hoped for! I really had no idea what the finished product would look like, so I was hoping for a good outcome. I liked the grain of the blank I selected but still had no experience with what the colors would be, etc. When I opened the package (which I wasn't expecting to arrive so fast) I was floored! These grips are stunning and look absolutely fantastic on my pistol. I have your cards so I have a reference when people ask where they came from. Please consider this as a handshake from me to you on a job well done! You do nice work and it has been a pleasure doing business with you!"
"I purchased 3 sets of grips. Browns Custom Grips does quality work, they do what they say they'll do, they're easy to work with and they offer reasonable prices. What else would I ask for? Thanks for the beautiful grips... I'm very pleased."
" just recently recieved and installed a set of grips from Brown's Custom Grips on my service issue 1911, a gift from a man who did many thing with this gun at his side in the interest of our country. The grips were exhibition grade desert ironwood with a gloss finish. Without question these grips absolutely fit perfectly and look stunning. They are truely an appropriate upgrade for a firearm that has certainly earned its place in this world. Adam's work is top notch and I will not hesitate to do buisness with him again. Thank you, and pictures are on the way soon!"
"Another happy customer! Look at my .45 in the spalted maple to see how these new grips really set off the appearance of my pistol. Adam is a most accomodating,honest person you will ever deal with."
"I just recived A set of grips that Mr Brown did for me. He bobtaild at no charge they look fantastic on my custom colt commander when I CAN I WILL SEND A PICTURE."
"I purchased three sets of grips to spruce up my 1911 collection.I Could not be more pleased. The workmanship was impeccable and they fit like a glove. I've paid more but they were not better."
- James Campbell Chief of Police (Retired) & 1911 fanatic
"I have purchased 3 sets of 1911 .45 grips from Brown's Custom Grips. I am extremely satified and very happy with each set. I have 3 different woods and two of the three were special order after buying a set off Gunbroker. I had an accident with one set, I broke a grip very shortly after purchase. My fault or Adam's is irrelavant, when I told him about it he proceeded to make me a new set to replace the grip that was broken. No questions asked. Thus my total recommendation and Satisfaction Guaranteed title. I have given Brown's Custom Grip business cards to the local gun shops and show off mine whenever possible. I WILL be back for others. A recommendation for a beautiful wood... Ambroyna. This is the absolute best looking grip I have ever seen. Its on my Kimber and gets all sorts of great comments."
