I am seriously considering buying a KWA 1911 Mk2 and some extra grips because the stock ones are ugly. All I can find are 1911 grips that are made for Tokyo Maruis. Anyone know if KWA and TM 1911 grips are compatible?

Eh, well I guess I'll take one for the team and buy the Marui grips. I'll report back and say if they fit or not.

I can confirm that Marui grips do not fit. The gap between the screws is a tiny bit too small and also the grips as a whole are smaller than the MkII's grips.

Perhaps with a small drill bit, you could mod the Marui grips to have their holes a little wider? ...(no pun intended)

Yeah, you could, but the entire grip is smaller than the KWA's, so it wouldnt look right. I just gave the Marui grips to my little brother for his WE. I actually have some rosewood on the way for some custom M1911 grips I'll be making.

Rosewood? Nice! Keep us posted on that. I would like to see this... :)

Ive tried to change the grips and the only downside is that the oem grips are weighted, without those if feels a little weird. Though I guess you could put some on the new grips. The holes dont line up perfectly though, its a little off.

Eh, change of plans. I've never done this before (not saying I can't) so I'll start with a different wood. Walnut, it's cheaper, softer, and easier to get. I'll start another topic once I get working on it. If it works out I'm certain more grips will come in the future.
