    Hawkmoon....that's what I call perfect timing! At about $37.00, it's a great value too.
    I see the results of your Caspian Government are decent, albeit not as nice as the Colt. I hope the Commander safety fits the Caspian Commander frame better.

    Nice article and well illustrated.

    Thank you for the article. Had a read that earlier, I would have bought a commander grip safety, unfortunately I got the GI version and it sticks out too much for the .250 radius I have.

    Wilson Drop-in Grip Safety in a Remington R1

    I agree that this was a very nice piece of work. I've installed Wilson drop-ins in two of my Colts. However, recently I bought a Remington R1 Government model in SS. Took her to the range and it shot very well, with a nice trigger and very good accuracy. My Son went with me and shot it some too. After me running a couple of magazines through it, my Son said, "Dad, your hand is bleeding." Sure enough, the R1 had bitten me - hammer bite. I hadn't shot a 1911 without a beavertail of some sort in such a long time, I'd forgotten (except for the scar) what it was like to experience hammer bite. That evening, I ordered a Wilson drop-in beavertail for this gun. Last evening I began installation. What a pain in the neck to install. Frame filing, safety trimming, more frame filing. What seemed like an eternity, I finally got it installed and it works fine. Upon general inspection, I didn't see much difference between Colt and Remington frames, but evidently there is. It works, but it was a lot of work to get it installed.
