    I use the corner of a credit card to wriggle underneath it and pry it up an out if it's being a bit sticky....don't wriggle it back and forth too much, the tongue and groove on the pin that links the two sides together can be fragile. Try to lift it straight up as much as possible

    IIRC, the tactical TS is like the Kimber.

    remove the left side first, then the right side should lift up off the grooved sear pin.

    the bigger question is why you were taking the safety out? unless to replace a frame mounted part, there is no reaon to go beyond field strip on a 1911 for routine care.
