    Colt Defender Beavertail Grip Safety

    Hi I am looking for an upswept beavertail safety for my Colt Defender 100 years of service edition that came with the duckbill grip safety i want to replace it with the upswept beavertail and wonder which ones would drop in without having to fit it or ones with minimal modding to fit ....Thanks

    I used a Wilson Combat drop in #429BC for my Colt New Agent which is the same frame size as the Defender. It's Blue of course but I'll assume they will have a Stainless model also. Looks great. No frame alteration required with only a small amount of grip safety arm to trigger bow fitting. Works like a champ. Good luck

    Interesting. I bought a 9mm Defender in 2010 and it had a "beavertail" grip safety. Below it is with my 2002 in 45ACP that came with and still has a "duckbill" which fits my hand fine.



    Anyway Colt or whoever Colt bought the safeties from should have some that would pretty much "drop in" I would think. I know early Defenders had a "beavertail" with the ridge up the back that was and still is made by Caspian.

    The early Defenders have the Commander frame tangs, whereas the later ones are radiused for the current grip safety.
