I have to grind down the beavertail grip on my 1911 and don't feel like dropping cash on something I may only use one or twice..

Let me know, I will buy the bits I need.

PG quit trying to take all my ammo..

RK I should have thought about it, I was going to buy a new one but it is hard to find one that fits without a gap on the mil-spec..

Once I thouch up that little part it should be awesome..

I was laughing cause at dinner Steve and I were talking about dremels and gunsmithing. Where's that motivational poster about gunsmithing with the dremel?

SB, take that dremel..........lay it on the road, then run over it 4-5 times with your car!

Now, you can use a dremel drum sander bit, chuck it in a drill press, that way your cut will be even and level.........

This is what a GI grip safety looks like after it has been relieved for a Commander style hammer...........

Good idea, thats what mine looks like, I just need to even out the grind..



... I just tried the gun blue pen, and it seems like it may work good to cover the spot in question

Project Mil-spec is complete, bought a dremel today and finished gringing down the factory beavertail to a meet the new hammer.

Not all bubba, Then blued the hammer and beavertail.
