A quality product that works and looks very good. |
I have them on my 1911's and they were easy to fit.
Unfortunately a different story for my STI Edge. The Edge has a squared "plunger tube" that is part of the frame, as opposed to the rounded off plunger tube on a regular 1911.
The squared...

I bought 1 and made it work on my new Limcat, and liked the extra thumb support and protection from the slide. Bought 2 more for my other STI's. Love it.

Bonne qualité et montage Plug and Play. Permet une meilleur prise en main et un meilleur ressenti à mon gout.

Way to bulky. Had to shorten mij extended slide release, the sides are so high that I could not properly grab the serration on the slide. Quality is good.

Perfect product at a good price. I equipped all my 1911 and 2011 platforms with this safety.

The DAA 1911/2011 Ambidextrous Safeties with Shields are precision-made stainless-steel Safeties made with state-of-art Metal Injection Molding (MIM) technology. They are designed for use on any 2011 or 1911 pistol, with some minor fitting required. It is always recommended to have a competent Gun Smith fit safeties!

These safeties are designed to offer a wider and longer than standard paddle on left side of the pistol (right-hand thumb), with a smaller, yet still sizeable paddle on the right side, for those left-handed stages we all love so much! The total side to side width of the assembled Safeties are designed to be just narrow enough to fit the requirements of the IPSC Standard Division Box.

The extended Safety paddle on the left side rests on top of the plunger tube, preventing excessive pressure and strain on the pin. The shields are well spaced away from the slide to avoid any contact or rub marks, which are common with other shielded Safeties.

The large shields on both sides, ensure that you will not make contact with the slide, a known cause of malfunctions, especially in the heat of competition, when one’s grip tends to shift and sometimes tighten. (if you find yourself suffering from more malfunctions in matches than you have in practice – slide contact may well be the culprit).

Please take note of the following safety recommendations:

  • Safeties should only be installed and fitted by a qualified gunsmith
  • These are not “drop in” parts! Light fitting is to be expected in most cases
  • Always be sure to first thoroughly test the function of your Safeties with an unloaded firearm
