I'd like to be able to use a high thumb (on top of the safety) grip to help minimize recoil and further my control of the weapon, but no matter what I seem to do, it generates intermittant grip safety issues preventing firing while dry-firing and at the range....something I cannot chance to actual use while carrying.
I have medium/large sized hands btw, and all my 1911's have a BT with a good sized protrusion on the bottom, all have differing high mount safeties...and I have this problem with all of them. I purchased a Wilson wedge MSH in the thinking it would help this over my flat MSH's, and while I like it very much indeed, still the same thing happens. I have no similar problems whatsoever using a low grip (my default).
My thinking is a mid/low mount safety, but other than the (unfinished geez) low-mount Gunsite ones sold at Brownells for $41, these seem to be like fairy dust: not really exisiting outside custom makers who don't sell them unless it's in conjunction with having major work done (which I understand btw).
Is there any other suppliers out there? Does anyone use one for carrying purposes and is there any problems impacting your holster's safety detent area with it?
