My series l Ultra CDP sometimes does not disengage the grip safety (especially when I draw and try to fire one-handed)...It comes very close but no cigar...I shoot high thumb and realize this method contributes to the problem...Question?...Might it help if I bend the Grip Safety spring up just a bit so as to apply more pressure to the GS?

Bending the sear spring out will add more tension to the disengaged GS and will make your problem worse. You could take a little material off the arm on the GS that blocks the trigger bow or get a GS with a memory bump. Or, if you feel comfortable with it, you could "pin" the GS since its a pre-Series 2. Other than that, you need to find a way to add "meat" to your hand. :D

Thanks Kruzr....Of course you are correct (I re-thought the problem a bit)...I will probably file a bit from the bottom of the engagement notch on the GS and see if that helps...If not I may have to have a GS with a speed bump fitted...I doubt if my hand will get any bigger unless I whack it with a BFH.....

I wonder if it would be practical to somehow add a "memory bump" to the standard Kimber safety. I'm not aware of any such product, but it might just be feasible. Does anyone else have any thoughts on this?

I have a thought on this idea.....this is the sort of thing you don't discuss in a forum...it's an idea you discuss with a patent attorney. It's a good idea. 1911 guys are always looking for gadgets. This would be a good one that I think people would buy. I'd rather spend $2.95 on an "adhesive" memory bump. If it helped me...then maybe I'd spend $35.00+gunsmithing for the real deal.

Good idea.

Hey forget what I said.....now where did I put that patent attorney's biz card?
