    What do you call the ambidextrous thumb safety installed on kimber 1911s, the one that is not retained on the right side by the grip panels?

    Is this available here as an aftermarket part?

    I dont think meron sa atin nito. It uses the hammer pin to arrest the offside safety's downward movement. It doesnt require a "leg" na nakaipit sa grip panel. I think its the same idea with armscor pero ang armscor sear pin naman ang gamit na pang secure. Try Nashe baka meron silang parts ng Kimber.

    Look for a Kings ambi safety, maybe twin pines have them. Kings use the hammer pin to secure the safety while the armscor use the sear pin. I got the armscor safety, mura lang kasi. :)
