A buddy was given some custom parts from a friend who sold his 1911s. He asked if I could install them for him. What he had is a Springfield GI Parkerized 1911A1, an arched an checkered MSH, a McCormick Commander Hammer, and a Wilson wide extended safety. I told him that most of the parts would work but that he would need a beaver tail safety to accomodate the commander hammer, because they are relieved for it.

He asked why I couldn't relieve the standard grip safety. I then thought about it and said well nobody does that anymore because everyone uses beavertails, but mechanically there isn't any reason. He convinced me that he was not governed by looks as much as he is about function, so I agreed to try my hand at it.

Here is the result.

He didn't want to spend any extra on a new grip safety.
