I’m looking at the page now, have a question if you don’t mind. What beavertail choice do you choose, or does it matter? There’s standard, Wilson, or .250 radius.
To be honest... I don't buy frames from them, just slides. I get my frames from JEM Guns.

I would think that it matters based on what you want to use for your GS.

It depends on what Grip Safety you want to use.

The Wilson is a compound radius.

The .250 is similar to Colts but may be over cut depending on the frame. You can get a Harrison or EGW with a .245 that may mate up well.

I use the GI tang profile as to have the most control over the fit. However some of their frames with GI tangs work better with a .220 radius.

This is my current Caspian project with a .220 EGW grip safety.
