I'm the furthest thing from a professional so take this with a grain of salt, I'm guessing you are trying to put the Valor grips on which are not designed for an ambi safety. My Valor had just a one sided safety. Look on the back side of the right hand grip....is there a cutout (notch) for the ambi safety? If not, there is your problem.

I only have one 1911 with ambi-safety, the part showing appears on my gun as well.......sure it hasn't always shown?

Hope that helps!
