Though i didn't Fit it in a gun yet i took some pics with my Les Baer apart .
When you hear it makes the gun sit deeper in the hand its hard to envision ..

Hopefully these will help ..

As you can see this is the Les Baer Fit Grip safety a thing of beauty.





Now Here is the Fusion / ED brown Style



As you can see to use this style you still have to grind away more of the frame tangs which in turn moves you hand closer to the bore line.

This one shows the difference in thickness of the 2 grip safeties ..

Les Baer on the Left Fusion / Ed Brown Style on the Right


another pic of the thickness of the grip safeties notice the ribs on the fusion version for some reason i like this better than a solid block on the grip safety

I just ordered a stainless Fusion/Ed Brown beavertail for my blued Pointman 1 for a contrast look and I was wondering if I will have to do any fitting or do you think it will drop right in?

I'm sure it will have to have some fitting

I don't think there is such a thing as a drop-in beavertail, unless they (grip safety and frame) both come from the same manufacturer and were made for the same gun.

The Wilson Drop in Comes as close to drop in as you can get but it needs the trigger arm fit

The early drop in beavertails from wilson at least, before then changed to the "upswept" beavertail drop right in without fitting the trigger arm tang. The new ones do not.
