Tisas Hi Power safety replacement

My one fault with the SS Tisas HP was the safety. The little lever was VERY hard to engage and disengage.

Initially I bought the ambi safety from Gunparts in my home town (Hurley) upstate N.Y. and it does not use a pin to hold the right lever in, instead the right lever has a banana shaped "extension" on it that goes under the right grip to keep it from falling off. I sent it back and the Midway model with the pin securing the right lever at the same price as the Gunparts safety is a (IMO) better choice.

The video from BH helped a bit, but their filming a dark gun on a dark background with poor lighting could have been better. I wish I had their third hand tool but a Vise grip with padded jaws to hold the hammer cocked while reassembling did the trick.

While I was at it, I took a few seconds to polish the sear, and after a couple of reassembly backtracks the Browning ambi from Midway is in.

I've never disassembled a HP before but I'm happy I got the new safety in. What a difference.

I have purchased a number of the ambidextrous safeties from BHSS ( currently 25% off) for FN and Argentine Hi Powers finding them easy to install and function just fine. I use a BHSS tool to hold the hammer back but never would I use a pair of vise grips on one of my prized possessions, padded jaws or not ( actually a strong rubber band will do the job).

Once I had it in pieces and did not have a tool, I did what I had to. For sure I'll be fabricating a less crude tool now that I know that I need it :-)

My Tisas has the same safety as my T-series Browning. No complaints.

Gnappi, That wasn’t very nice of me to slam the vise grip idea but I cringe when I see someone with a firearm and pliers or vise grip...sorry. Mike

Before you toss those nasty stock safeties - I'll gladly accept them.

THANKS, C.
