    ... wasn't arguing the point...merely expanding on it...my question has always been why such a tiny safety if it was requested for horse soldiers...seems that something the size of modern ambis would have been much better...oh, well...the military...the grip safety so that if it were dangling by a lanyard, I can understand...
    ...in your studies, have you ever read which one of his pistols has sold the most worldwide-between the P35 and the 1911?

    Good question on the thumb safety, my guess would be it was made small to avoid snagging.

    I have modified the thumb safety on my 1911s to match the older style. I like it much better. Personal preference.

    I like the small ones myself, and Colt used them on their commercials models until sometime in 1949.

    You bet, you had 99% of it correct, just had the safety's switched.

    I admit I didn't read this whole thread, but I know some of it is concentrating on the usefulness or in some people's opinion, the danger of the thumb safety on a 1911 and whether it should be carried cocked and locked. The answer to that question, for me, is of course it should be carried that way! If you're in a defensive situation you can't count on having the time to rack the slide or cocking the hammer. There is nothing unsafe about it. Does it require some training? yes, just like the operation of any sidearm.
