so, i have seen a lot of 1911's have that safty 'button' on the rear of the grip that is pushed in when your holding the gun. i hate that thing. im really intarested in a 1911 but i dont want that crap on there. is there a certain manufacturer that makes it without? or do i have to find an older one?

I'm wondering the exact same thing, it's not like you notice it while shooting.
Some people have been known to mechanically deactivate it and original 1911s as I understand didn't have them.

I think novak has a cure for it now. Its a one piece mainspring housing and grip safety. Permanantly disengages it when installed.

Or if I am mistaken just buy a Star or Ballester Molina. Basic 1911 copies without the safety.

I saw that same page featured in another thread toward this same question last spring.
Nothing has changed it's stillnot available.
Just get the grip safety pinned and that's that, any gunsmith can do it assuming you'll find one who'll agree to do it.

Hey even the guy who designed the 1911(John Moses Browning) hated it but had to include it because the US Army Cavalry demanded it have one.

You can have it pinned or with alittle work you can get it to engage very early. I did this because sometime when I draw to fast, I get a very high grip on the beavertail. Just high enough to keep the grip safety from engaging. But with a proper grip, the grip safety isn't an isssue

You aren't supposed to 'decock' a 1911.
The chamber should be emptied before hand and then the hammer dropped normally.

Yeah, but if you were like one of those ex-Navy SEAL types like the hundred thousand that are on all the other gun boards you would know the old one handed mag release and slide cycle off the chest maneuver (with aid of the rear sight against the chest or under the weak arm).
:p

But seriously, oh. :D

The molinas arent mil spec to a colt but most of the parts can be fitted.

The Star is a nice 9mm version but with an external extractor for more strength.
