And to just throw another log on the fire, what about removing the mag disconnect from the HP? Same sort of thing?
I would never remove the grip safety from a 1911. I am just to use to it. There have been people that have had them either pinned down, or "desensitized" to the point that they really don't even work anymore. Not that hard to do. No need to spend tons' of money on that device when there are other cheaper ways to do it that don't modify the original design and look of the 1911. And yes, JMB died long before the GP-35 was finished. And it was at the request of the Army that the grip safety be added. Lot's of details about this if interested.
