    Have a Wilson Combat CQB Compact with ambi safety, Have lots of rounds through it and no problem as of yet. Also an AR-15 ( Bushmaster) Lower and (Wilson Combat )upper with ambi safety, I have heard that this one tends to cause problems. As of yet no problems with this.
    Don't know about resale but don't figure on selling either anyway.
    Regards Richard

    Talking AMBI Bah Humbug

    Do not like AMBI's at all. Back in the day was able to obtain a left handed Randall for the lefty wife. It cost much less than the full conversion I was prepared to pay for.

    As a fellow leftie, I would suggest keeping a LH safety. I consider it important to gun control in draw and use. If your thumb is on the wrong side of the gun, i see weak control over the muzzle.

    I'm a lefty with smallish hands and I don't know how I'd ever make it without an ambi. WAAAYYY too much of the pistol out ther dangling with my thumb onn the off side trying to manipulate a left side safety. I'll never go back to single sided safeties on my 1911s.

    Right after I got my ambi. safter installed on my pre 2 Kimber I read a comment on a forum saying hold the weapon with my left hand in a shooting position & snick off the saftey with my trigger finger. At first I struggled with it but now it's alot easier. I'm glad I read it cause if my ambi. saftey acts up I'll just snick it off with my left trigger finger instead of repair my ambi. saftey.

    I have a leftie friend who does the same thing. One other thing he did was get a wide-pad safety, and I re-contoured it- very narrow at the rear, full-width towards the front. Works well for him.
