Ok i ordered one while my champ was at SA. It came home today and I tried to get it to work. No go , even with the thumb safety out. it fitd thr frame great but it was locking up the trigger and the hammer wouldnt lock down.. any ideas guys? ti matchs up very close to the stock grip and i stoned it a lil to get the shape of the prong sticking out to match up. On brownells some guys posted it dropped into their non colts with no issues, i called brownells and they said it was for colt frames only.. confusion has struck me hard..lol

it looks almost identical to the stock , should I file the lower portion of the extension down more?

If I'm reading it correctly, you're hitting the horizontal part of the safety. If the trigger is sticking back, its most likely this.

Hard to tell w/o looking at the gun.

yes the trigger was sought of sticking back with the safety in place, when the thumb safety was installed it locked everything up

Take out the thumb safety and look in the hole to see if the GS arm is blocking the trigger or is still sitting on top (or nearly on top) of the trigger bow. It still may not be engaging the back of the bow. If it does, then you took too much off.

with out the thumb safety in place ( using a punch to hold in the gs) pulling the trigger does not activate the hammer.. but with the TS it does. any ideas?

Well, the idea was to take out the thumb safety so you can see what's going on and not touching the grip safety to see if it is blocking the rear of the trigger bow when it isn't being engaged. :nod:
