I bought a used Remington R1S Enhanced 1911. It was in great shape Nice matte stainless, but had a polished Colt thumb safety. I don't have the means to bead blast it. The Wilson Combat one was a perfect match finish-wise to the rest of the gun. The extended part is kinda nice and rests on top of the hogue grip when it's selected off. No filing needed either. Dropped it in and got a positive click engaement for safety on and off.
Tactical Thumb Safety
Great product. Almost drop in. Had to do a little sanding on the post that secures the grip safety but otherwise silky smooth operation right out of the package on a Rock Island 1911 GI 38 Super. Never have had a thumb safety fit as good without any filing to mate with the sear. Just perfect. Fits better than any thumb safety on any of my six 6 factory built 1911 type pistols.
Drop in part for the Springfield EMP 3 9 mm
Spend the extra money get the bulletproof sieries parts. I bought this thumb safety to replace the ambidextrous safetys that came standard on my Springfield 3 EMP 9 mm. To my surprise this safety dropped right in with no additional fitting necessary. Although I did prefer the feel of the bullet proof wide of lever safety for the size of my hands, as an every day carry the tactical lever was a better fit.
New thumb safety for EMP 40
This is my second purchase of the SS BP tactical thumb safety for an EMP. After reading previous reviews, I tried to see if this would just drop in without any fitting. To my surprise, IT DID! No expensive trip back to SACS for custom fitting! I wonder if I paid for previous fitting that I didnt need on the last one? Way to go Wilson! Great product!
Flawless function
Doing further upgrades on my EDC Kimber I ordered this part plus a BP slide stop to match. Order arrived and had 2 issues. The safety was more of a polished finish instead of bead blasted like the slide stop. You could actually see relics of tool marks. Also, when in the UP position you could see the edge the window peeking out. Wilsons customer service took care of me right away. Sent them the part to swap out and had a very quick turnaround. The second part.. minor fitting required of came back with the matching bead blasted finish. The window is still peeking out.. which could be a bit oversized from Kimber...but had the contour of the safety followed the contour of the grip it wouldnt be an issue. Still, Im gonna keep it on the gun. The angle and location of the lever is perfect for getting my thumb knuckle out of the way of the slide.. exactly what it was designed for.
No fitting required for Springfield EMP .40
I was shocked to see that this safety dropped in with no fitting. This is the third Wilson safety Ive installed in one of my guns, first to go in without fitting though! This safety is much snappier when switching from Safe to Fire, much nicer for concealed carry than the factory safety.
Fitting was required on my standard Ruger SR1911
Even thou fitting was required not a big deal, the quality of this part is what really shines.
great parts
I purchased safety and slide stop both needed fitting on para GI expert. These look great.
The Wilson Bulletproof Thumb Safety Was a Drop-in for My Ruger SR1911
This beautiful part dropped in with no filing/fitting on my Ruger SR1911 and works flawlessly. It appears to have been lightly polished by Wilson, so no machining marks can be seen on the front side like the photo on the website. Some machining marks can be seen on the back. Overall, it is a wonderful addition to my 1911. I am slowly replacing many parts with Wilson Bulletproof versions.
a no fit thumb safety
received my wilson tactical thumb safety in good is a very nicely made safety.i removed the grip safety on a colt officers model to check for fit and to see how much metal would have to be my suprise the safety went right in, and not only that it actually fit.i mean just right, as if i had filed an polished it to fit.there was zero movement of the sear and it was square.i have never had that happen before as every thumb safety i have purchased had to be fit.i suppoose it was a fluke and i know i will be fitting them in the future but still it was nice to have a part that turned out to be drop in.thanks wilson.john a.
Great safety!
Added this to my Kimber Pro Carry II today. Great addition! The safety lever is shorter and closer to the pistols reciever than the factory part. I feel lucky as this was also a drop in part. I was fully expecting to break out the Dremmel but it popped right in and worked flawlessly immediately. Also has a more solid engagement to the sear so you really feel it click into place. Also, like another buyer said, the simple fact that its a machined, heat-treated, solid bar cut piece assures me that my primary safety is always in top condition. Top notch. Thanks again Wilson Combat.
Sweet part looks and works great. had to tweek it a little but man do I like it. Still have a few more parts to order from my wish list then I am done and ready to start on a full size 1911 with all WC BULLET PROOF PARTS!! Thanks WC
Bought this cause I am using all Bulletproof parts in my build, have to say WC never ceases to amaze me. This piece is superior in fit and feel to all other pieces I have used in my builds. A slight amount of fitting, which is normal for a new safety, and bingo it was a match made in heaven. It gives you a very secure safety on and safety off feel. Love it and thanks again WC for the amazing craftsmanship!
picture doesnt do it justice
I dropped this part into my springfield loaded; it needed to be filed down where it meets the safety return spring. This part functions flawlessly, and the stainless finish shines brilliantly. The picture shown on the WC website makes it look a little grainy.
Premium Match Grade Part
What More Can I Say, Electro-Discharge Machined From, Heat Treated & Hardend, Shock-Grade, Bar-Stock Tool Steel To Give Unlimited Service. I Only Order Wilson Parts, Because I Want the Very Best, Period. Fit & Finish Was Top, Thanks Wilson Combat, Keep Up The Great Work.
Superb Thumb Safety
Has plenty of meat on the sear engagement lug for a perfect fit. Be prepared to file and stone for a bit, when I say it has plenty of meat on it, youll be fitting for awhile. It took me about an hour to get a positive engagement. This has become my standard thumb safety on two guns.
Machined from Barstock
This without a doubt as fine a thumb safety as can be made.....Ed Brown and Les Baers parts are CAST, these are solid machined barstock...I want the strongest part for my primary safety.
