Detailed Description

NSN - 1005013732775

The High Ride Beavertail Grip Safety will improve the comfort and controllability of your 1911 Auto. This is accomplished by allowing the shooting hand to be positioned closer to the plane of the bore while spreading the recoil over a broad rounded surface. The bottom of the High Ride Safety features our raised Posi-Release tab which assures positive grip safety disengagement while serving as a grip memory point each time you draw your pistol. The top of the High Ride Safety has a hammer pocket which makes the pistol more snag-free by allowing a commander or bobbed spur hammer to sit down in the beavertail when cocked. Frame modification required. Installation of a Wilson High Ride (#298) beavertail requires cutting the frame to fit the beavertail. Our beavertail fitting jig mounts to the hammer and thumb safety pin holes to serve as a filing guide to help prevent over cutting of the frame. Once this cut is made, only a few thousandths remain for final fitting to a perfect match. Complete instructions included on the use of the fitting jig and how to properly install a Wilson's beavertail grip safety.

Note - not designed to work with Series 80 Colt pistols. Will work with minor modifications.

From low-end to high-end
Recently bought the beavertail grip safety for my low-end Tisas 1911 A-1. Be prepared for serious gun smithing on any low-end 1911s for the DIYs. This was my first time doing this and if you buy the fitting jig you cannot go wrong. You may also have to do a bit of filing on the trigger lever on the safety, but the end result is completely amazing. I will be buying the same parts again for my second 1911.
building the 1911
this reveiw is for all parts ive bought to build my 1911.i have rebuilt a a-c 11 with wilson parts. it has improved this 1911 with great results.very dependable.i am building another 1911 with wilson parts. i hope to acheive the same results as the far wilson parts have made the build very easy.i would recomend these parts to any one who is doing a complete build or just replacing worn parts.
Great addition
I recently ordered this beavertail for an upgrade on my GI model 1911. Ill have to say this is one quality piece of equipment. Thanks Wilson. I will definitely be ordering more parts in the future.
piece of art
Purchased this safety for a Build I am working on, along with the fitting Jig, and the top notch customer support this fit perfectly. Honestly I could not be happier, it gives you a very positive disengage when you wrap your hands around the grip due to the raised part of the safety. Also puts your hand a little higher up on the frame, this gives you a very stable feel when firing your 1911. I will build all 1911s from now on with this safety.
Beavertail Grip Safety
Great easy to install
Fitted vs, Drop In
I installed a Drop In Beaver Tail Grip Safety on a Remington R1 1911. I wasnt pleased with the gap. I ordered the Beaver Tail Grip Safety Fitting Jig and this safety. I followed the easy to understand directions included with the Jig and 30 Minutes later, a perfectly fitted Beaver Tail Grip Safety. Fitting the function of the Safety was a Piece of Cake.
