hammer bite sucks!!!
 
What's the vest way to avoid hammer bite?

You could a beavertail installed on your 1911, or perhaps get the hammer shaved down(bobbed I think they call it). You could get the spur hammer replaced by a commander hammer or skeleton hammer. If you don't have the funds try duct taping your hand.

Learn to hold the gun correctly? Please take that as it was given :o
Now every full sized Llama "1911" i've ever had did it - I'd take a VERY small amount of the hammer spur off, not even enough to notice really - Cured it-
It really depends on the gun, Don't start buying beavertails & such if you have a GI style 1911 -

I am holding the gun correctly. However where can I find the pieces to modify the gun?

Just take a little off the spur---
Do you really want to (and able to) start grinding on the frame to put a BT on :confused:
BTW- You still have'nt said WHAT style/model gun you are talking about- I'm assuming its a "GI" style 1911-

Brownells and MidwayUSA if you're looking for replacement parts.

OK- I believe Wilson Combat makes the only beavertail that will work without modifying the frame- Most any good hammer should work-

I've heard about it but I have never seen it myself. Where exactly does it "bite" your hand? It would seem that the hammer spur would have to be extremely long (even for a GI), protrude past the hammer guard AND the three fingers gripping the stock coming loose during recoil. Do you have huge hands?
