Hey guys I recently stumbled across this thread on another forum http://www.hipointtalk.com/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=5824, and if you scroll down half way on the page you will see a tokarev with 1911 wood grips. I really want these grips on my tokarev tt-33. I continued on reading to see how they were attached but only could conlcude the frame was tapped for them. I have no idea what a 1911 frame looks like with the grips off, so tapping it can not be seen for me. Also I am a purist of sorts and really do not what to drill a hole in to my guns frame. I have found the grips for sale (about 25 usd) and have thought about maybe slowly shaping them till they fit, then using JB weld to hold them on. Its just an idea, and I wanted to hear from my fellow forum members, if you have any better ideas let me hear them. Thanks kira.

That one still has the screws in it, but they screws screw into a "bushing" that sticks out about 1/8inch or so from the frame. If I get time later I will tear mine apart and take some pics for you.

From what I remember, the grip on those old TT-33s are thinner than a 1911, so those rubber wrap around style grips won't feel secure on them. Unless you mount the grips further back, and stretch them around, keeping the rubber taught around the front strap.
