I'm lucky to not have that issue, but beavertail safeties are cheap. Besides, go with the Commander size (M1911 GI) and you'd have the rounded hammer and beavertail safety. They both cost the same when I priced them out before making the purchase on the Commander size model. Besides, I think that you would like the Commander size model. The balance is much better than the 5" model. Had I given the Commander a try before, I would have nothing but Commanders.
