My new carry gun

I bought and posted about buying a colt Wiley clapp stainless commander recently. It will be my new carry gun in the very near future. I plan on making some changes to it to make it my ideal carry gun

My first change happened today. I swapped the triggers between my clapp and my competition model. I also bought a new colt teardrop safety from midwayusa. I will put the safety in when it arrives

Here is a pic of the guns with the swapped triggers

The retro safety on the Clapp models requires really short thumbs.

It looks cool but I can't work it without shifting my grip.

Both nice. I also prefer matching, instead of contrasting, finishes on triggers. Thumb safeties are tough...I think a lot of the extended aftermarket ones really need to be shaped and reduced, but it's time consuming. So you end up with big honking shelves on carry guns.

This is my fusion that I built with 45 acp fusion kit.
I have cut the frame for a carry cut.
I wear it daily with no issues

I've got a Clapp Stainless also, nice guns. My EDC is a Clapp CCO. I love that checkering.

New thumb safety arrived and it's fitted. The new safety doesn't have any overtravel when clicking off. The hammer doesn't fall until the safety just clears the bottom of the slide. I tried the hard trigger pull with the safety on and click the safety off to test if the hammer falls and it doesn't
Safety feels so much better than the Wiley clapp safety. It's the colt teardrop safety

Put some rds through it alternating the safety on and off every couple of rds. Tried to force the trigger a bit on several rds. Everything functions as it should

FLGR is in. Really helped smooth out the spring when operating the slide

Nice transformation there. Run a few hundred rounds through it to check reliability of the pistol and your magazines and you'll be golden.

I absolutely loathed that thumb safety, so much so that I had a new one before I even picked up my Clapp. 500 rounds of drills and a couple of IDPA matches later I figured out that maybe Wiley had something there.

Three years and 4000 rounds later the new safety is still in my spares kit!
