There's no rib down the center of the Sig 1911 grip safety.Probably the rib down the center of the grip safety.
SIG (Kimber does too) uses that instead of a memory pad to help ensure you disengage the grip safety with a high hold.
Strange, the beavertail on my Sig 1911 has no sharp corners and doesn't cause any pain.I find the 'knuckle relief' on the Sig, STI and Ruger grip safeties make the gun unshootable for me. The corner recoils directly into my thumb knucke and causes quite an effect. First time I shot an STI was at a USPSA match and I couldn't finish the match due to the pain inflicted by their horrible grip safety.
Putting a sharp corner on a beavertail makes no sense, but I guess most people don't have any trouble with it.
Are you saying the current SIG GSR grip safety aren't like this Caspian grip safety, with the raised rib rather than a memory pad? http://www.brownells.com/handgun-pa...od42595.aspx?avs|Make_3=1911&avs|Style_1=GripThere's no rib down the center of the Sig 1911 grip safety.
See for yourself.Are you saying the current SIG GSR grip safety aren't like this Caspian grip safety, with the raised rib rather than a memory pad? http://www.brownells.com/handgun-pa...od42595.aspx?avs|Make_3=1911&avs|Style_1=Grip
Memory pad grip safety with no rib. http://www.brownells.com/handgun-pa...od27055.aspx?avs|Make_3=1911&avs|Style_1=Grip
This is a GI example with no rib and no pad. http://www.brownells.com/handgun-pa...rod4577.aspx?avs|Make_3=1911&avs|Style_1=Grip
Thanks for the correction. It looks like SIG has gone to the pad on their grip safety's. If so, then possibly that is what the OP is complaining about.See for yourself.
Do a Google image search. That is the way they used to come. I admit, I don't know when the change was made.I have never seen that ribbed grip safety on a Sig 1911.
