    The only 1911 pistol I own that has an ambi safety is a Springfield and it is the type that rides under the right side grip panel. I've never really been a fan of it and always thought that it's creating an unnecessary weak link in the design of the pistol. I've noticed that on pretty much...

    This may be a silly question, but can I change out my thumb safety on my Remington RI to an Ambi safety? Like, is it possible?
  3. 1911 Carry
    Has anyone ever experienced or heard of the thumb safety on an ambi 1911 becoming disengaged somehow while holstered (IWB / OWB) ? Like sitting the wrong way on a wire-frame chair tripping the ambi safety lever somehow? Am I crazy for thinking this is a concern?

    I'd like to have a lowered paddle thumb safety like EGW (Grayson?), but need an ambi. I tend to over-grip the gun to be sure to hit the GS, even with a well-tuned one. I really like the Harrison design, too, but I don't expect an ambi of it, there is just not enough demand for folks to produce...

    Non railed WC EDC X9. Black AT with grey grips. Green fiber front sight. Small backstrap, medium trigger. Brand new (never fired) Beautiful firearm, but I must part ways with it. I ordered this pistol very early, and it has been with me for a month or two. Just can’t get myself to shoot it...

    I'm thinking of VZ Grips for my Ed Brown bobtail w/ambi safety. The VZ website offers 3 choices, Std, Rock Island, or Extended (Taurus/STI). I've looked at their info on the choices, and visited STI, Colt, RI and Taurus websites, still not sure. Before I call VZ, anyone have any experience or...

    Very recent purchase that due to force majeure I have to consider offloading... Like new, less than 100 rounds though it. IMHO the ambi bolt lock/release is the best there is.

    Hey all...recently bought a Fusion Pro-Series railed Gov't 1911 on here from MSGT2511 (great transaction!). Being a lefty, I had to install an ambi-safety, and I like arched MSH'ings for my big mitts. The grips on the gun are awesome...BUT, don't have an ambi cut out. So, I bought an Ed Brown...

    I am going to fit a WC beavertail to a Colt Commander. I am also planning on addend a EGW Ambi Thumb Safety. My question is should i fit the beavertail with the original colt single side Thumb Safety as it is a solid bar - OR - should i fit the Ambi Safety first and then the beavertail. I...

    Question: How many Addicts have the ambi-safety cutout added to your grips, even if you end up not using them on a gun with an ambi-safety? I guess the alternate question would be: Would you pass on a set of grips that HAS an ambi-safety cutout if you were planning on using them with a...

    Bob Marvel Custom .45ACP with stainless steel upgrade ($200), and Ambi Safety upgrade ($120). I am the second owner and have never fired it, but the original owner stated “he took it to the range once, and shot 100 flawless rounds through it. Took it home stripped, cleaned and oil it then put...

    Would appreciate Pros and Cons of "Kings Style" ambi safeties that utilize a hammer pin and a mortise/tenon retaining sleeve. This style appears far more robust than the "Standard" version. This is important to me as I am left handed and ride the safety with my thumb pretty hard. Have broken...

    And how do I remove it??
  16. General 1911 talk
    Newby question here. I want a set of grips but they only come with an ambi cut. My 1911 does not have an ambi. My question is, will this look weird? Has anybody ever done this? Thanks in advance.
