Okay .. here's a lesson for all of you - if you want to install a beavertail grip safety, just pay a gunsmith to do it for you! I bought an Ed Brown grip safety for my Colt Gold Cup Trophy. I tried to save some $$ and have my brother start it out for me, but this is turning into a pain in the rear. As you can see, the frame needs to be cut - a lot, and then there is still a lot of blending to do. What do you guys think. Should I just keep going with this, or can anyone recommend a different grip safety that has more "meat" that would still work with this .250" radius cut (and the bit of tang that's been removed)? I took it to Bruce Jackson at the Marksman .. he said he'd have to remove too much material, and so I don't think made much changes.. And Dane Burns just flat out wasn't interested in working on it. Anyone got any ideas? I can't be the first one to have done this..
