The same company installs magnetic safeties on revolvers that only allow the owner to fire the weapon if they are wearing a special ring...
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
I think I had the "special ring" to make it work. I sent away for it in the '50s. I believe it was a Captain Marvel ring & all it took was 6 boxtops from a certain brand of cereal + postage & handling. Since according to my wife I never throw anything away so it must be around somewhere.

I actually started down this path, but then I figured, that if I'm going to add a manual safety, I may as well convert the trigger to SA only... then it occurred to me that I should just get a 1911....

Looks like someone wants to copy the 1911.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

Why the hell would you want a safety on a glock or any carry gun for that matter. Your safety is a good holster and your booger picker. Taking a safety off is another step to take when time is better spent on pulling the trigger! I recently read on this site somewhere a fella did not get to shoot his robber because his safety was on. Luckily it turned out good for him. We all carried revolvers for YEARS and didn't need a safety on them.
You could save a lot of money putting one of these over the guard behind the trigger.
I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.
That manual thumb safety has been around for years & has been pretty well-received. I would consider one if I were to delete the trigger's "safety-flipper" and have the pull-weight & reset substantially reduced. But for that much trouble, I'd just buy a CZ75 SA & be done with it.
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.
yea i guess if you really love your j frames and wanted a hair trigger i could see the need.
to each their own, i just don't understand some of the aftermarket crap people do to their carry guns. if you can't get "brand x" relatively close to the way you want it just find a different gun that is from the factory.
Before I started carrying and keeping a round in the chamber, I bought one of these for my G17.
Never did get around to installing it...never went back to worrying about the need either.

My revolvers already have 8+ pound trigger pulls. And it's nigh impossible to make a revolver fire in the holster because the cylinder will not turn in a tight holster!
Well, I suppose if a person wants one, have at it. To each their own. I just don't see much utility in it.
