There is a flat tension spring behind the grip safety. All one has to do is place enough bend on that spring to stop the play. Takes about five minutes or less.
Thank you for the info sir, i would love to do the adjustment myself but i dont have a clue on the steps to do it

Mr. Wray, there are many videos on youtube concerning complete detailed diss and ass of 1911's. Take a look at them and then decide whether or not you want to do it yourself. I don't even have one, and I'd feel pretty confident trying it. (I also just like to take things apart too)

I just got back from the gunsmith, he bent the mainspring for the grip safety and fixed the problem, all better now. He didnt even charge me anything,so i bought some ammo... Thanks for all the advice guys
