That must be where John Browning got the idea for the grip safety on the 1911
;-)

I have handled and shouldered the gun. It is interesting for sure. The safety works perfectly.

Are there any records to support that it is factory installed?

I don't know Brian... perhaps where it is a PGCA gun Chuck can look into that.

Nothing in the records to indicate that the work was done by Parker.

The only other guys I can think of who were involved in putting some of the PGCA guns on display in the Meriden Historical Society's headquarters are Dave Suponski and Larry Frey but I know Dave took a very keen interest in that one so he may be able to shine a light on it being factory work or not.

I just reached out to Dave but it's late and he works in the morning.

I communicated with Dave this morning. He believes it was an aftermarket endeavor and he thinks he might have patent information on it. He told me he would check his files but it will take some time.
