    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..

    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.
