My wife gave me a sr1911 for our wedding anniversary, just got it today. Looks and feels pretty nice. I gave it a good cleaning but haven't had a chance to shoot yet. The only thing I didn't like was how loose the grip safety is. It really rattles around.
Can a guy just bend the spring out a little bit to put more pressure on the grip safety?
Yeah you can....but;
Go gently, leaf springs are touchy to fool with.
Do not mess with the "finger" that sits against the sear.
Afterwards, your ".45" might still "rattle" a bit when shaken. Most of them do.
Hope this helps.
