Shoot 500 rounds of 45ACP with a A! 1911 with the GI grip safety. That beaver tail feels pretty good after that. But to each their own. They also make it a little easier to get some of those commander type hammers in there The weapon worked well for years without them that's a fact. T Here are several different styles of the safety also so you might want to look at all of those too before condemning the lot.
