    Let the flaming begin :rolleyes: I had to at least try this as I have had in in a drawer for over 3 years

    I had to take out the thin bushing on the right side and add a taller bushing for the attachment


    Button her up and added some Chambers blue nitre grip screws for good luck

    I can immediately see that you can't rack the slide from over the top, it has to be with the slide-release or with the RCS. We'll see, headed to range in the morning for some therapy.

    This is America and you are free to do what you want with you belongings. That being said an unprotected safety would give me a pause but to each is his own.

    Ok, since we are having confessions, many years ago I was perusing a pawn shop and saw this little fellow looking lonely, dirt cheap, feeling sorry for it, I took him home. My only redemption, (unlike AZ) it was already installed at purchase, just never removed it.;)

    I've watched someone shoot his right testicle off, it's downright nasty. The guy was shaky in the first place, he bought a SNICK holster for a speed match after we told him several times not to use one. First off pinned grip safety and he started to fiddle with the pistol in the holster... dropped the safety off and part of the retention was in the trigger guard... he touched one off. Luckily they have prosthetic balls.

    I tried one years ago on a 1911. Sliced my hand deeply when I did a malfunction drill. It went away.

    I’m just glad you put it on an already crap firearm.*

    *Nothing wrong with WC, I was just being funny. In truth, I’m pretty sure part of my soul died, when I saw the pictures.

    Raw-dogging it with a Wilson. IMO that's a man who knows what a tool is for!

    No stupid questions, it's how we learn. The thing on my revolver and Azguy's 1911 is called a clipdraw. They have been around for years but you rarely see serious gun guys install them on their guns because they are dangerous as hell. You shove the gun down inside your waistband and the clip slides over the outside of your belt or waistband for concealed carry. Light weight, easy to slip on or off but there is nothing to cover the trigger which makes it dangerous. Also it does not secure your gun as well as a good holster. Generally is considered more of a novelty than actual serious carry method.

    It looks like the negative side outweighs the usefulness.

    Well, now I feel that was a pretty stupid question on my part. BUT in my own defense, when I first looked at the thread, TapATalk was acting up a bit and didn't successfully display the OP's photos so wasn't aware "the clip" was the subject. In fact, I had concluded (for whatever reason), that grips where the topic and that maybe he had put standard thickness grips on one side and thin grips on the other side. (me: )

    When I scrolled down to your post, the photo loaded ok. And to be honest, the 'clip' was the furthest thing from my mind. Your revolver "grips" looked normal but I couldn't figure out what that thing was (which was also obviously, the real subject of the photo & thread). So I was completely lost in this thread.

    Now it all makes sense... I've had a good laugh at myself! (Never too old to be an idiot!)

    I am/was vaguely aware of 'the clip' holster thing - but haven't seen one in *real* life. And especially didn't know they could be put on a revolver! (Looks like, "just the thing for a Glock"! )

    As for the safety-ness of carrying this, you have the thumb safety which would never just become disengaged an you have double redundancy safeties with the grip safety and finally the trigger.

    I feel total safe with it. I'll be carrying,it all day and will report.

    I used one of these on a Glock 36 as a BUG for a while. To each his own. I never got too high or too low about it. It does work though.

    Never seen one on a 1911 but I had a Ruger LC9 and EC9s that both had the pocket clips installed. For the most part they worked like they should.
