Grip Safety

When reporting on the 1911 gun build class I noted how fitting the grip safety was giving me fits.  And how much metal you really have to remove.  A commenter Will was hoping I wasn't exaggerating.  So I promised to post a pic of the actual part.  Finally got around to it.  There is a new part for comparison.  Yup.  The black stuff is Sharpie marker.

What brand is that grip safety?
What is that clearance on the top of the tab for? That is what looks so weird to me. It's been a while since I looked inside a 1911, but I'm drawing a blank.

If it hits the frame, then the frame may be out of spec.
