Ed Brown Beavertail & Thumb Safety

Ed Brown Memory Groove Beavertail Grip Safety
More shooters specify the Ed Brown Beavertail than all others combined. Sweeps so high on the gun it is countersunk so a Commander-styled hammer will drop into it. Our grip safety gets your hand as deep into the gun as possible. This reduces felt recoil because it better aligns the centerline of the bore with the axis of your forearm. It also improves natural pointing ability, leading to better accuracy. This grip safety has Memory Grooves cut into a raised pad on the rear for positive depression of the part. With normal use, your hand becomes accustomed to the feel of the grooves, and will remember where the perfect grip is for consistent shooting. The Memory Grooves also aid in depressing the safety for the shooter with thin hands. No need to pin the grip safety! If you have ever failed to activate a grip safety, you need this part! 3D CAD designed to remove the maximum amount of metal from the frame without weakening it, you simply cannot get a better designed part. Uses a .250 radius cut on the frame centered on the thumb safety pin hole. Complete installation instructions included. See our beavertail installation jig #886 for an easy way to establish this .250 radius.

Beavertail Grip Safety Installation Jig
This is an easy to use jig for installing our beavertail grip safety.

It is perfect for gauging as well as fine finishing and has great value as a reusable professional tool. Complete installation instructions included.

Wide Ambidextrous Safety
The most ergonomic and attractive thumb safety on the market! Widest design 1/4" levers for "high thumb" shooting style, wider than any of it's competitors. This allows the shooter to rest the thumb on top of the safety as Jeff Cooper and others recommend. Shaped for shooting comfort, the lever is angled slightly to keep the thumb from contacting the slide and has a double angle to fit the thumb perfectly. The ambidextrous safety includes both left and right sides needed for the either hand operation. Perfect for certain competitions, left hand shooters, and as a tactical component. May be custom trimmed to any slimmer proportions with no loss of style or function, or you can purchase the tactical version, which is already trimmed. Designed for all 1911 type frames and made from high quality steel. Requires minor gunsmith fitting for safe operation and includes complete instructions.
