Wilson Combat is announcing what they call the “Toughest Ambi Safety You Will Ever Find Anywhere” It’s made of billet steel that has been CNC machined for ‘long lasting, wobble free fit’. It’s pre-shaped, available in blue and stainless, is contoured for proper (‘perfect, comfortable’) feel and held in place by a hammer pin that holds the right side lever securely in place without using the grips to hold the safety in place. Fitting is required.

Buy yours here. They are also running a special on 1911 grips if you are interested.

Note: Adding this ambi safety to your weapon will do no more to improve your marksmanship and gunhandling than it would to smear the weapon with peanut butter if you don’t train properly…one might even argue this applies to just about any weapon accessory when it comes to the fundamentals.

Ambi safeties are not always the best accessory for a concealed carry weapon. As far as being tough, how many thumb safeties wear out? I can think of other parts that will wear out first.

Does Wilson make a similar ambi safety with the smaller 'teardrop' levers? As Mooddawg implies, larger competition-inspired 'speed safeties' can be bumped off relatively easily during carry.

When I had an ambi installed on my Commander, it had the large levers, and it was like pulling teeth to get the 'smith to cut them down as far as he did.

$150 for an ambi safety? WOW. Not saying it isn't well made, but that's a lot of coin for a safety.
