Machined from: Stainless Steel
Finish: Stainless Steel
Compatible with: Frames cut for a .245" radius, like STI, Kimber or Brown
Not compatible with: The Wilson beavertail cut. In order to utilize our beavertail grip safety on a Springfield or Caspian frame, you will need to weld the tangs.
We have had this on our drawing board for years and finally we are manufacturing a beavertail machined from bar stock in stainless steel and carbon steel.
Our grip safety will fit the Ruger SR1911 with minimal fitting.

Through our years of experience building guns, we were able to come up with a lot of improvements over the various beavertail offerings available today. Our improvements include the following:

- Our beavertail is wider than the frame @ .770 (allowing you to the blend the beavertail to the frame, and not the other way around)
- The pin hole is reamed to .158 (improving fit and ambi's function)
- Lower bottom grip surface (no need to break into the thumb safety hole)
- Longer bottom (less gap between beavertail and main spring housing)
- Wider bottom to "fill" frame better (around .617)
- Bottom radius smaller to better fill frame radius cuts
- .308-.309 wide to fit frame ears snug (no rattles)
- The pad is fuller and blank allowing for artist's interpretation
- No pits, as the part is machined from bar stock
- Radius is .245 to better fit frames that are pre cut to .250
- Bottom angle better matches main spring housing again for less gap.

Ruger SR1911 makeover
Purchased this grip safety and a ss mainspring housing for a Ruger SR1911 makeover. Mainspring housing was a slide in fit. Grip safety was an easy install. Required minimal fitting but worked out great and looks even better. If you’re looking for a grip safety to replace the Ruger factory black rattler this is the correct one that fits properly and doesn’t rattle. Glad I listened to some forum recommendations to buy from EGW.

Perfect for the application
I bought the stainless 0.250 radius grip safety for one of the builds I was doing on a Palmetto State Armory stainless frame. This part comes slightly over-sized on almost all dimensions, and had to be fitted. Once it was functional, it only took a few minutes to blend the part to the frame for a very, very good fit. The metal appears to be identical to that used by PSA, for there is no difference in color whatsoever.

I would recommend this part to anyone building a 1911 with a stainless frame.
