And just to illustrate how the frame needs to be modded to properly fit a beavertail here's a shot before this one got refinished. The rear tangs on the frame need to be contoured to fit the beavertail around the pivot point. Then the beavertail and frame are blended to eleminate large gaps or ledges that would be uncomfrotable in the hand under extended firing or recoil.



If someone really wants to get the frame to sit lower in the hand they can also relieve the area immediately behind the trigger guard.

Is that why you seem to be such a "man of few words"?

Come to think of it, the Delta Elite was the only one that did not bite while in the original configuration.

Those are still available, but should be used with the commander styled hammer.

So if I were to buy a new hammer all I have to do is change them out? No gunsmith or other parts necessary?

As a touch typist, I have the same issues sometimes. Having a cheap keyboard doesn't help either. Now if I could just learn to spell...

Not necessarily. Any part purchased may need to have minor fitting.

The commander hammer will not work with the GI style grip safety.
The GI styled hammer will not work with the extended safety.
The sear may not work with the new hammer.
You may need to purchase the hammer strut and pin.

Even if just swapping out parts seems to work, there are steps required to ensure that the firearm functions in a safe manner.

Dan is right. Changing out parts in a 1911 usually requires some fitting. Especially the fire control parts. Putting a new hammer in will likely require the mating surfaces with the sear to be fitted and can also require some fitting adjustments to be made to the safeties.

If you look at the picture that I posted if the 1911 with the commander style hammer you can see that the shape of the rear tang of the grip safety was modified to allow the hammer to "nest" in it. So that standard grip safety was dished out a bit. The commander hammer is shorter in length but thicker in depth.
