Are ALL 1911 grips and magazines interchangeable? 7 – 8 rd. just longer and will fit any model ? cool

Is your question specific to Dan’s or just in general on the 1911 series platforms ?

For instance, the full size 7 & 8-rd. magazines will not fit in an Officer’s (3″) model, which requires the 6-rd. mag. The 8-rd. mags will fit in any full-size frame (Government 5″ and Commander 4.25″) and are not any longer, they fit an extra cartridge by using different follower & spring.

As long as the frames and grips are Mil-Spec, they should interchange. One gotcha is the cutout for the ambi safety, if you have one.

RE- Magazines; All boils down to dimensions and cutout locations for mag catches.  You can get extended magazines that hold many cartridges- or even drums.

CM 10rounders have a good reputation

I was mainly asking about DWs, waiting on PM 7 and wondered what would

fit if I wanted to. Saw some nice two tone wood grips on ebay listed for bobtail ?

Bobtail would be a different grip, I think it would fit but look a little funky

On the subject of magazines, I use Chip McCormick Power Mags and have never had a problem or concern with them

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

Yep, full size. I always prefer stainless magazines, and SS should have been original

Yes, any standard full-size grip will fit.  The magazines should be stainless, but has a black plate pad that extends below the frame.

I really think there must be some kind of laws against this?

Oh, by “her” you meant a gun?

Yes, those will fit your PM, but are only 7-rounders.  Unless you are wanting them for factory originality purposes, get good aftermarket 8-rd. magazines.
