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
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 -

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
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?
