Uncomfortable Ruger main spring housing

I'm a firm believer in firmly gripping your pistol. When doing so with a Ruger, I find that the sharp latch for the main spring digs into my palm and gets very uncomfortable. Am I the only one? I'm thinking I need to build some kind of removable plug to fill the gap around it and make the back smooth... What would you use?

Not a bad idea... I think I have some small heat-shrink tubing I could use. That should take the edge off.

Stick a piece of skate, stair tape over the backstrap.  Your grip will like it.  Cut more pieces for when you strip it down.

Be sure to put the skateboard tape over the backstrap, but not under the grips.  There is a pin, it has a large head on it, that is held in place with the left side grip.  If the grip isn't tight to frame it will float out on the other side, causing trigger problems.  You could put a small piece of tape in the cutout for the pin, in the grip, to alleviate it.  I put tape under the grip and noodled out why the trigger wouldn't work.  It should have been obvious, but for me, it wasn't.

Thank you everyone; I'll try the grip tape.

lyman1903; no burr or anything on the pin, but it is rather pointy. I think I make matters worse in the manner I grip my pistol. I bring my hand really high, digging into the web between my thumb and index, and then lower to get my fingers around.
