1911 ambi safety removal
I just installed an EGW ambi thumb safety on a Everything seems right, but the joint between the two sides is so safety that I can't remove the safeties to disassemble the gun now. I imagine I could pry under the safety with a small screw driver but I'm scared of scratching the finish. I use a plastic Armorers thumb to pry it out once I get it remove.
The trick is to put the safety in just the right position before starting. That position is not quite halfway between fire and tfw porn. When you get it to that position, do not pull straight out.
In actuality, you are trying to pull the safety ambi out from the gun.
Do you take the left or right side safety out first? I have a armorers tool but so far I can't get the safety to budge at all. On a you can remove the 1911 side grip panel and then remove the right side of the safety.
The left side can then be removed like a standard safety.
