    Hey guys
    Back in the late 80''s or early 90''s I purchased a Springfield A1 full size (brand new). From briefing the forum it sounds as though some things on my gun are Springfield specific. Just wondering if it would hold true even though my gun is "old". Example the radius on the Springfield frame of 220 vs 250.

    Thanks guys!

    I have one from 1985 along with a few others, I haven't found anything proprietary with them.

    I thought the radius on the heel (grip safety) was unique? Same goes for the main spring retainer works?

    I would like to eventually change the grip safety to a S and A style. To do that I'm going to need to change the hammer to a commander style. Can I use any commander hammer, knowing it will need a little fitment.

    Anything designed for a standard 1911 should work.
