View Full Version : 1911 backstrap question

05-02-2010, 12:16 AM
i have a RIA tactical, and i really like the feel of an arched back strap. my question is, would an arched back strap work with a beaver tail safety? ive searched online and i cant find a picture of a 1911 with a beavertail and an arched backstrap. :o

I own a RIA Tactical too, any 1911 parts should fit, some may need "fitting" but should be able to work.

The "backstrap" you're talking about is an arched mainspring-housing, and yes an arched one will drop in, no fitting needed in your RIA Tac.
