I recently purchased a caspian frame 1911 with a higher than normal grip safety and was wondering what brand would fit the frame the best to swap it out with?

Swapping out a custom fit beavertail grip safety ccan be problematic as far as fit and looks go

Unfortunately in most cases swapping a fit beavertail for another requires welding the frame and refitting to new beavertail. Contouring of frame can be an issue because too much material has been removed for the different beavertail.

Caspian frame grip safety Empty Grind it off?

I have one - didn't like the high bump - Caspian said I could just grind it off - I did. --- Feels good now & is more accurate. -

As a side not, the 220 radius safeties really blend better on caspian. For me the best of the 250 radius safeties is the STI style. JMHO
