two more weeks and she will be mine....i can't wait. any ideas on what i should do about the grip safety? i was first thinking of swapping it for a kings or wilson, but maybe i'll just radius the edges a bit. whattya think, and pointers are always welcome.
THANKS. IT'S A SERIES 70. CAN'T WAIT TO GET IT. AJAX PEARL GRIPS W/ GOLD COLT MEDALLION...ONE PRETTY GUN. NICE POLISHED SLIDE. TRIGGER FELT PRETTY GOOD, SO DID EVERYTHING ELSE. I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN...I'D KINDA HATE TO MESS WITH IT. SEE YA AROUND.
Either buy a recent Colt unit, or else take a regular GI or Colt Gov't grip safety and cut a relief notch for the hammer. That way you won't have hammer bite and you won't have altered the frame either.
Ditto dsk's statement on altering a GM grip saftey. I have kinda large hands and found that when I grabbed the weapon in a hurry, it would bite me. I took a GM saftey, ground a notch for the Commander hammer, didn't have to alter the frame, and now it won't bite! You'll need a Dremel tool and a good stone,as those saftey's are HARD!. Most people won't notice the difference in looks
