Cominolli manual safety and glock pistols

Dear Mr. Ayoob:

We have recently had a very "lively" discussion on c1 v. c3 here.

It appears that Cominolli manual safety might be very attractive to both C3 and perhaps even C1 proponents.

Reliability of Glocks is why many of us bought this particular firearm, and it is obviously very important. Is Cominolli manual safety 99.999% reliable 99.999% of the time, like the Glock pistol? Could you share your thoughts on this particular modification system? Have you seen any video/photo illustration on how exactly it works with all other parts of glock pistol (how exactly it engages/disengages, etc.)? Cominolli says on their site and one gun reviewer (no idea about his credibility) that some police departments have adopted this feature. Any idea which specific departments?

We would greatly appreciate your insights, thoughts, and opinions on this. Thank you!

When this device came out, we tested it and tried to make it fail. We didn't, and in all these years I have yet to hear of a broken one.

A big advantage to the manual safety which many people miss is the weapon retention factor. If the opponent momentarily gets your gun away from you and tries to shoot you with it, he has to figure out that it is the rare Glock with a manual safety before he can make it go bang. This can buy you time to rectify the situation.

A competent user, knowing the safety is there and making it part of regular practice as with a cocked and locked 1911, should have no more trouble using it reflexively than someone with a familiar 1911 that doesn't have an ambi safety.

While I don't know of any departments issuing the gun that way at this time, I'm sure there are many Cominolli-equipped Glocks being carried on departments with broad privately owned/department approved weapons policies.
