Recently purchased a Wilson commander style hammer and beavertail for my springfield GI 1911. Modifications to frame for beavertail went very well. Looks good to. My issue comes in when i try to install the thumb saftey. It will not fit between the new sear and commander hammer assembly! According to the techs @ Wilson this is not supposed to be an issue. Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated!

Did you fit the safety lug to the sear yet?

No, I have made any changes to the new parts. Is there a site that provides instructions for this modification?

You have to fit the new safety to the sear before it will go in.
