    Hmm I installed the Ed Brown MSH on my SR1911 and the grip safety is not working as in I don't need to depress it to drop the hammer. I switched back and it works , what am I missing it all looks right slides right in. I did notice it's just a little bit thicker could the be the issue? New one is .422 at the top the stock one is .398 :huh:

    Hi kev350,

    Well you have to fit them to your gun. May need to bend the grip safety spring? I live on 172nd ave. I could look at it and maybe see the problem.
    PM me if you like I'm not far from Gresham.

    Sounds like your trigger/sear/safety spring (the three pronged one) is in the wrong position.

    I forgot to update I got it figured out. I got out the calibers and checked turns out it was the top of the MSH the new one was .195 now .170 engages nicely now just took a bit of file work. MSH.jpg
