Hey, huge thanks for the guide! Do you know if it's possible to install "real" grips on one of those(have a pair lying around that I've got from local gun store ages ago(I think those are for S&W 1911). Really like how those feel so was thinking if it's possible to install 'em on my airsoft.
Thanks in advance!

Hello, you will have to check physically. They pretty much look the same. Maybe you will need to remove the mag release extention to fit them. Also check the length of the screws, or use the original ones from the airsoft version, if they fit the new grips.
