The color looks good with the stainless gun / grip screws combo. The grips themselves wouldn't work for me, but that's entirely personal preference. Thin grips on a 1911 just don't do it for me because I find the grip profile to already be sort of thin for my big mitts even with standard grips. Also, even though they look good, I don't like completely smooth grips (on a carry/duty gun, range only and/or purely for looks is a different story). I tend to find them too slippery in those sweaty hand situations.
