    It is, but the safety bums me out.

    I was worried from the get, so I only have me to blame. My muscle memory for the 1911 safety is ingrained now, and in the "panic" situation, this thing is not good (yet)

    FWIW the thumb safety is what allows you to carry the single action 1911 cocked and locked.

    Do you mean not getting the safety off in time, or are you speaking of an accidental discharge?

    That sounds like it may be the issue with the Kimber. Like you mentioned, I'd definitely be looking into a fix for it. :cheers:

    Copy. Yeah, it is certainly concerning. On all of my other 1911s, I have extended thumb safeties installed, and I am so used to how easy they disengage
