For this specific model? Or just 1911 grips in general? My understanding it being a double stack traditional 1911 grips won't work. Any input is appreciated

The Hogue for P14 or VZ are all I know of.

My son's RIA came with very pretty walnut grips, but I slapped a used Pachmayr wrap-around "Signature" grip on it once we finished testing it out.  The Pachmayr is grippy and comfortable to hold, and the sides are steel-reinforced for stability.  Those pretty walnut grips were way too smooth to hold well.

I bought these grips and they DO NOT fit either of my RIA double stacks. If anyone wants to see if they will fit theirs you are welcome to try. Or I can measure the distance between the holes.


ETA I would really like to find grips for my pistols.

I'll add that rock island may have changed their hole spacing on different models and years.

Why didn't you return them?

The RIA doublestack grips are sorta like Para grips but not exactly.   You could probably whittle some Para grips down to fit (I forget exactly how they're different and I'm not sitting in front of them right now).

I emailed/messaged the seller asking to return. They did not reply. Didn't want to mail back without an agreement to refund some of the payment.

It's paypal and I could have fought it but didn't.  Figured they might get used someday.

If this works out, post some pics.  I may be interested in some.

I looked back and realized that I only posted half of what I'd meant to.  I said my Pachmayer grips worked well, but I left out the bit that would have made the post worthwhile: while Pachmayer no longer makes this type of grip, Hougue DOES a similar, wrap around grip for Para double stack pistols, and I think that would fit the RIA double stack pistol.

Yes the Hogue grips will fit.  You just stretch them a little.

Could you post a pic or two of the difference in fit? I'm assuming the grip screw spacing is different?

Thanks!
