Genuine Alligator Gun Grips

Inventory Update - Our alligator gun grips are made to order with a 3-4 week lead time.

Our genuine alligator gun grips are made from wild hand wrestled alligators. The exotic leather gun grips are incredibly unique and very durable. Each grip is hand dyed and burnished with wax, to age with a handsome natural patina over time. Sealed with a natural water resistant coating, these alligator gun grips are designed to withstand anything mother nature throws your way. This gun grip is only available for full size and compact 1911's. Each grip is made to order with a current lead time of two weeks. After you place your order, a member of our team will call you to confirm the make and model of your firearm, as well as whether you would like a traditional or magwell style grip. We will answer any other questions or concerns regarding your order during the phone call.

The Generational Guarantee - Leave Your Children Something To Fight Over

100-Year Warranty - 

Our philosophy is simple - Exceed our customers expectations no matter the cost. We'll never mass produce, we'll never sacrifice quality, and nothing will ever leave our shop unless we're certain it will last 100 years. Every piece of leather is built with pride and integrity to provide a lifetime of satisfaction. We're so confident in our talented craftsmen, durable materials, and outstanding designs, that we warranty them against workmanship for 100 years. This warranty applies to products used responsibly. Exposure to chemicals like chlorine, detergent, or conditioners that result in a breakdown of the material or damage caused by misuse (dog chewing, water exposure, broken zippers, or road rash, etc.) will void the 100 year warranty. Our warrany covers issues that arise from workmanship such as thread coming loose or leather ripping due to flawed worksmanship. Warranty does not cover over stretching or excessive break in or use.  

To receive our 100-Year Warranty, you must register your product with our Warranty Department within 30 days of receiving it in the mail. Click here to register your product. 

30-Day Money Back Guarantee - 

When you order a product that has NOT been customized with initials, laser/light/red dot sights, or different colors, you'll receive a 30-day money back guarantee. If the item you receive is not what we described it as, please contact us within 30 days and as long the item is in like-new condition, we'll refund or exchange the item for you. Please contact us by email at Hello@TheSouthernTrapper.com and attach photos with your order number and describe the situation to us, and we'll get back to you quickly. To fit properly, our products require a break-in period before they will function as intended. Here are instructions on how to break in a leather holster. Items that have been customized or custom made cannot be exchanged, returned, or refunded for store credit. Examples of "customized" orders includes: products that have been customized with initials, embossments, lights, lasers, red dot sights and other available customizations. This guarantee does not cover unintentional customer mistakes, such as choosing the wrong gun, the wrong size or color, or the wrong hand orientation.

Wonderful craftsmanship

These grips are wonderful. I couldn't be more pleased with their fit and function on my Rock Island Tac .45 ACP 1911. And their service was phenomenal.

These are beautiful heirloom quality 1911 pistol grips. I have paid more for a set of grips made of plastic but these are made of GENUINE ALLIGATOR! ! ! ! Beautiful and fully functional 1911 grips. Buy a pair today and you can thank me tomorrow. I am not joking or exaggerating.

Spectacular Craftsmanship!

The grips are absolutely beautiful. The tile size and patina of the skin exceeded my expectations. Thank so much to the Southern Trapper family! Cheers!

Fantastic quality, hot looks - but too thick...

I am very impressed with the craftsmanship and detail put into my grips. The look and fit great. My only complaint is that they are way more thicker than the standard 1911 grip - a bit too much. If I could change that then I would give them a 5 Star rating.
