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.

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

I have not had that done.

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

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

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

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.

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

Bad idea...

Exactly

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

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!!!!

Any that the truth. I don't know what topic is more adventures this topic or the one about carrying a Glock with one in the chamber.

Very true

I'm not sure which is worse.

What's odd to me is that I'm sure that most if not all here have no problem with a manual safety on pistols that come with them (1911 example), but think the idea of a Glock with the same type of safety is rediculous. To me, it comes down to the quality/durability of the product, and not some strange bias against Glocks with manual safeties. If one shoots 1911's almost exclusively (example), and likes and is used to this type of safety and then gets turned onto Glocks, this seems to me to be a viable, legitimate option, despite the ridicule of some GT members.

No he didn't. If you READ his post he asks if any members had done that. I don't have one of those nor do I have any interest in one but I have no problem with someone else installing an item that was not blessed by "Saint Gaston" on his or her own personal property.

Nice, I just want to thank all of you who responded to my message.
I have no plans on putting this safety on my Glock, I just wanted to know if anyone has done this.
It is nice to know that everyone has an opinion about this manner.

Rich.
