My Mil-spec is supposed to arrive today, and while I have another week before I can pick my baby up, I am looking at accesories.

If I put a high beavertail grip safety on it, will the spur hammer fit??? the commander hammers fit snug into the slot in the top of the beavertail. I don't know if the spur will fit.

I know a lot of you are going to probably say, "why ruin a good gun" but I can always change it back. And you can't get a "custom" gun without those damn front serations.

Was thinking about putting in a Chip Mcormick
Easy fit hammer, sear, and trigger. Will those parts go in with no problems?

Do you think there will be any problems in doing that....besides the moral delema of changing a Mil-spec into something un Mil :-)

You will need a Commander hammer. Caspian Arms and MGW both make a good round one, not elongated.

Hey, I agree 100%. The sharp edged grip safety tang is the one thing I really cannot stand about the mil-spec 1911. It chews up my hand pretty quick.

Maybe not from Springfield but I know Les Baer does offer several without the front serrations.

You may need some minimal fitting on the trigger, and you may also need to fit a new thumb safety.

Thanks, I had a feeling I had to do the hammer if I did the beavertail.
