So I got these grips off of ebay. Center to center is 3". I got them in the event they would fit my Astra Ruby. Center to center on thosegrips is 3 1/8" Any idea what they would fit. Normally if I buy a gun with problems I try to replace stock or grips or small parts. I've never looked for a pistol to match the grips. Any ideas where to start would be appreciated.

They look like 1911 grips to me.

Thanks Burner. If they go to a 1911, I won't be getting a pistol to fit the grips anytime soon.

Mitmat: Most of the Ruby Pistols the Spanish made during WW 1 were idiosynchonatic when it came to grips... Yours are for a Ruby, but finding out which of the 49 makers is going to be tough...You could buy one of each, and then try them??? :violin:

I can eliminate one that it won't fit. My Brunswig Ruby has squared upper like your Astra.

They may be European, but they certainly aren't 1911 grips. :think:

Might they be for a Llama Especial 32 acp ( a mini 1911)?
