manual safety

Hi, I just watched a YouTube video in which someone had a external manual safety put on their Glock 30s. Has anyone here had that done? By whom?

Thanks
Rich

All my Glocks have external manual safety, my finger. It stays off the trigger until I'm ready for it to go bang. Glocks are designed to not have external safeties. Your best bet is to get a handgun that comes with a factory external manual safety already on it.

Agreed. If you feel you need one there are many great options already out there on other manufactures firearms.

If you want a manual safety, you don't buy a Glock. It's that simple.

Hmmm. What if you already own a Glock and decide you want an external safety?

The Cominolli safety is regarded as a well designed accessory that doesn't void the Glock factory warranty. That sounds pretty simple, too.

Exactly

I can't even imagine the thought process that steers people to put some cheap and cheesy lever safety on their Glock.

The same thought process that leads some people to carry cheap and cheesy Glocks in the first place.

No, what I do is what I want to do with my money and my property. Its called free choice, owner discretion.

I like Glock pistols. I might like them better with a manual safety from Cominolli.

Some folks add a NY trigger. Others spend their money on other Glock enhancements, including lighter pull-weight trigger set ups that, arguably, detract from safety. That's ok, isn't it?

There is no sin in adding a manual safety to a Glock pistol, just as there is no cardinal rule against modifying/accessorizing an AR, a 1911 or any other firearm. Its that simple.

Does adding the parts you list involve cutting on a frame?? Bad idea!!!!

You sell it and get something else instead of putting some goofy aftermarket contraption on your carry gun.

Bad idea...

Deciding to put an external safety on a Glock is simply admitting that a Glock pistol is not for you and you figured that out after the purchase. Sell it and buy something that is for you. There are so many choices out there that offer external thumb safeties from the factory that there is no need to ruin a perfectly good firearm with an aftermarket part that adds more complication and failure points to a perfectly fine pistol.

If you want a pistol similar in function to a Glock with an optional thumb safety, a S&W M&P might be a good choice. H&K, Sig, FN, Ruger, and just about any 1911 manufacturer also make fine pistols with external safeties either standard or optional from the factory.

Glock did offer models with an external manual safety. Not sure if there are any here in the USA or if they still come from the factory for anybody anymore but Glock did make them for the Tasmanian police at one point.

Here is a photo from Glock. Not sure how long ago this was but it was posted on here a few years ago.

I remember seeing the ad, but I never saw one in the flesh and wasn't even sure they were ever produced.

That doesn't look like it would be too hard for a gunsmith to fab

Except you can have it on safe when it is protruding from the right side of the frame where there is no possibility of pressing the magazine release.

I have not had that done.

I don't want manual safeties on my defensive pistols.

That's what holsters + rule #3 are for.
