    There are 1911 style pistols without grip safeties, such as a Star Model B.

    The grip safety on my 1911 doesn't work sometimes. Does that count? Stupid 100 year old piece of crap:rofl:.

    He's from the future. Be careful about how you treat him, he might go back in time and kill your parents.

    That's cool.

    The Model B isn't exactly a 1911, but it shares the same overall style and grip angle.

    I used to have one of the original Para Ordnance kits. It did not have a grip safety and it is the only gun I ever had a neg. discharge with.

    my glocks dont have grip safeties, and I have hey to have a ND...

    I just think I would be more inclined to buy a 1911 tomorrow if I could get one w/o such safety.

    Just like people argue about 70s series or no lock with a S&W revolver.

    Go out and try a nice one once. Shoot it and see how you feel about it.

    Just pin it in place.
    That's what most competetive shooters (that I know) who use 1911's or 2011's do.

    You can convert pretty much any 1911 to not have a grip safety by using this thing. "The Answer" from Novak.

    The Answer has been around for a few years now. Personally I think it'd be nice if a major manufacturer of 1911's would offer their models with or without a GS.

    A 1911 without a GS is as safe as a Browning High Power.
