Sadly, amongst most brands of production guns in that price range, grip safety fit tends to vary from barely acceptable to terrible.

I think they could do better but also it is probably self limiting and will stop.

That is a shame and I think Ruger would do better then that. I agree with fxstchewy It should stop shaving aluminium. If it was mine I know the situation would always be in the back of my mind and bug me. I might try Ruger CS one more time, call them and hope to get someone else. Try and get the gun sent back and see what happens.

I told Ruger I would keep an eye on it and if it gets worse I would be calling back. I think I have learned a valuable lesson on aluminum framed guns in the 1911 platform. I have actually been shopping around for a replacement for it and see if any dealer would trade it in. Like you it is in the back of my mind and it really bothers me, and the blow off from Ruger did not help matters. I have a Para Expert commander in .45acp with an aluminum frame and it barely has the finish worn off with a lot more use but the grip safety fits the frame with very little clearance on either side.
