Excellent write up - much appreciated.

While the wide one would be nice I wonder when the standard one will be available again? Looks like everyone is out of stock on these things.

OK, fine, but what I'm saying is the screw head literally would not fit into the groove of the right side of the thumb safety (test fitted by itself - not tightened into the hammer pin).



Three calls to Wilson Combat yielded the same conversation. After I explained the issue it went something like this:

Wilson Combat - "All our parts require fitting."
Me - "Even this little screw head?!"
Wilson Combat - "Yes."

I finally tackled the bastard screw and spent several hours fitting it's tiny head into the right side slot.

I have it on my Wilson and I think the design is excellent. I was confused by it since I didn't have it built, it came from a dealer. It makes removing the ambi a breeze. I also haven't loctited my screw and I agree it has no where to go. I have a round count just south of 5000.

I've had my Wilson in my carry gun for over a year now with zero signs of wear. Best ambi safety ever.

FWIW, I installed the Wilson Bullet Proof Ambi in my Colt Gunsite CCO a couple of months ago. It was literally a drop in fit, and the screw fit the groove perfectly. No filing anywhere, and the pistol passed all safety checks. I'm a lefty, so I use right side lever just like a right hander uses a standard safety. I will be very surprised if this safety doesn't last the rest of my life.
