Problem with 1911 grip safety

I have had my Gold Cup NM for a couple of decades. It is my Bullseye gun. Lots of rounds through it, in excess of 60k.
Just recently I have had a problem during the sustained fire stages. The grip safety engages during a string and the gun won't fire. If I shift my hand, regripping, then I can continue. This cost me two shots in a gallery match on Wednesday.
I don't believe that my grip is a has not been all these years. What should I look at and, perhaps, do? This problem has not occurred in the Slow fire stage, only in Timed and Rapid.
I will analyze my grip in any case but I don't see that as the issue.
