Tweeking a Rock Island, 1911
I am out here in MASS, where you are limited to what you can buy. In a nut shell, Guns are expensive and every thing pre-ban is even more doe. So I picked up an older rock island 1911 A1 (GI). My first 1911. Here is the deal; it’s a parker-finished. What I want to do is add a Beaver tail, new trigger and hammer, My question, does any one have any input to these drop in beaver tail grip safety's? They say drop in, but do they really just drop in?
Also I don’t want to buy things and have them not look right. Like say I was to by a stainless steal looking trigger and hammer, would I be happy with the look…against the parker-finish? .is there I guild out there to help me match my gun parts? Or is that half the fun!!!
Any input would be great!!
