Ok - I am about to take the 'plunge' and modify my frame for a beavertail safety. Now I assume the jig is nothing more than two .50 hardened steel disks with a pin through them to shape the frame right? Reason is I want to make my own jig on my lathe and oil harden the disks. Thanks.

Actually, the Ed Brown jig for a beaver tail is to re-locate the hole for the mainspring housing pin. The only jig for re-shaping the frame is the actual bobtail mainspring housing!

Yes that does help. Now just so I am sure - the diameter is exactly .50 right? I mean obviously it must be to make the .250 radius but I want to be sure. Thanks.

Perfect! I'll be chucking up a piece of round stock soon. Now what what would be the 'best' GS for my first fit project?

My opinion is Ed Brown, just cause I like all of his stuff. It depends on what you want for grip height, 'speed bump' or not, etc. I like the high grip that the Ed Brown safeties get you and the speed bump.
