Is it the bump on the lower portion of the grip safety hurting your hand, or, is your hand getting pinched at the frame tangs/grip safety tie-in area?

Hi all.
Is your palm redened after shooting say 2-3 mags.? If so you must have very soft palms, If so you could wear shooting gloves with no fingers, and or soak your hands In a salt water mix to make you skin stronger, That's what boxers used to do when they had a problem with soft sikn on the hands!

Semper Fi all. Hank.

The web of my hand hurts a lot after I shoot about 50 rounds. Get's all red, but I try to get a REALLY high grip on my gun with the thumb above the safety.

Great looking Pointman Seven and Sarge grips.

I'd just wear a grove and keep on shooting.

Best regards.

LOL, I get the exact same thing after I've fired my two S&W 500's. One is a 4" and the other is a 6", both in stainless.

After many scrapes and red marks, I always use gloves. The rough texture on my Glock was abrading the skin on my thumb. Gloves just make it more pleasant. I buy a cheap leather work glove and cut the fingers out.

Might be able to gently buff the high spots on the grip safety with some fine sandpaper....; the lowest portion of the memory hump appers to jut out at an odd angle...

Not the proper way to procure another 1911.

sounds like you have checkered grips. The standard checkered grips all do that. I make two type checkered grips that do NOT burn your palm. I cal it soft checkering, it works really well. I own six pair of std checker Kimber grips and they all burn my palms after 100 rounds. The soft checker grips never burn you.
Better that that, when carrying concealed std checkered grips gnaw at your side under a shirt. My soft checkered grips never rub you raw. I always wondered why no grip makers have ever addressed these issues.

Try pounding your fist into crushed bottle glass. A few days of that and they'll be pretty toughened up. Wasn't that in a Van Damme movie?

My hands felt a bit pink after shooting my SA with the stock wood US grips. I switched to Hogues and it feels great. Of course, your grips are kinda pretty...

the PM7 did came with a standard checkered grip... i thought the checkered grip was the culprit that why i switch to a smooth grip by Sarge. But, for reason that still eludes me, my hand still aches after a trip to the range...


i guess a shooting gloves is the only solution.... hope i can find one that fit comfortable when shooting...

My PM7 likes hurting me too, even managed to draw blood once. After about fifty rounds I get a little blister on my trigger finger and if I break a hundred it will bust open (only did that once to learn my lesson). I couldn't figure it out until one day I was looking at the blister, then I looked at the trigger and it hit me. I guess the flesh of my finger was "flowing" into the hole for the overtravel screw and that was causing the tiny perfectly round blister. For now I either just limit my round count or wear a glove, but I'm going to find a decent way to cover up that hole so I don't have to bother with it anymore. Either that or get a trigger without one. Doesn't bother my hand to shoot it though, the only pistol I have that does that is my 442 with +Ps.

Not to hi-jack the thread here, but.

What a-clown redesigned the grip safety on 1911s w/that 'memory bump'??

Always wondered about that.


I myself like the original/classic safety and never have had problems other than hammer bite w/my meaty mitts.



question and rant over.


To the OP, either work around it or change out the safety, sorry.

That was a helpful post.

If the gun is moving around in your hands while you shoot then it will rub you raw. Are you sure that you are getting a good grip with your support hand? Try squeezing a little less with your firing hand and more with the support hand.

Also take a look at this to see if it will help: http://www.usconcealedcarry.com/public/301.cfm

Like you said, the culprit is the gun and after careful examination i agree.

Here's my suggestion.

We should trade your unfriendly gun for one my fine Nerf water injection pistols. These are true classics from high school years imported from The People's Republic of China (PROC.) They dont even make them this good anymore. Let me know, thanks.

Go split a cord of wood with an axe.

Problem solved.

Seriously though, I had some sharp edges on my Razor back that a file and some sandpaper took care of in quick fashion.

I think you've developed an extremely toxic allergic reaction to the gun itself, I learned that this affliction is incurable and will lead to an unexpected and untimely death.

My suggestion is to remove that evil gun from your environment by sending it to me via FedEx. You also must pay the FFL fees on both ends of the transaction.

It's the very least I can do to help you out.

I have the same problem with my Walther PPK after a few boxes of ammo. The backstrap cuts into the web of my hand between my thumb and index finger and the bottom edge of the grip digs into my palm. I always use a shooting glove on my dominant hand.
