    Took my new Ruger SR1911 LW Commander .45 to the range today. I shot 100rds, Sellier/Bellot 230gr FMJ. 93rds in target 1 and 7rds in Zombie. Used the two Ruger mags and two CMC mags. Had one FTF but, I think I limp wristed the last shot because it never happened again. Target was measured and set at 23ft. from firing line. I named her Lucy Gripplestink because of the grip safety rattle. Doesn't affect how she performs though. I absolutely love this gun!!

    If the SR1911 Commander Stainless shoots as good as Lucy, it may well be a while before I get another! Truthfully, this one feels a lot better in my hand than the two full size ones did.

    I just want to make it clear, the 3 shots that look like they form a triangle w/4 in the center, was an accident. I wasn't shooting to pierce the Zombies ears!:D

    OR,

    You can eliminate that grip safety rattle by increasing the tension on the right leaf of the sear spring. I did that with all my Ruger SR1911's.

    Just bend the right hand spring away from the frame.

    No more rattle.

    I don't know Zoid... there is a lot of slop side to side with the grip safety. I tried your method on both of mine... the rattle is just smaller chattering teeth.

    Yeah, I know. I had typed, "You can eliminate almost all of that grip safety rattle . . . . ", but edited before posting. I didn't want to dampen any resolve he might have had
