    Glock After Mkt. Safety

    I 've just traded for a Glock 27 with a thumb safety. This device has two parts and can be removed without tools.
    The frame has been relieved appox. one quarter inch to allow the lever to move. If you remove this safety, the gun is a stock Glock.
    Does anyone have info on this safety?

    No info, but I'd take it off. Totally not needed for a Glock to be "safe." The only times I've ever read/heard/seen problems with Glocks have been when people start adding aftermarket crap.

    This is about as useful as a safety on a revolver.

    I think it is a great idea and if Glock were smart they would offer it from the factory.

    Of course if Glock were smart they would not have made a gun that requires you to pull the trigger to clean the weapon... that would be another thread though!

    I never have understood that comment. I always unload my gun before cleaning it. Anyone who is worried about pulling the trigger prior to cleaning needs to take a second and check their gun again. Pretty simple, but you're right that is better left to another thread.

    Bud White, thank's for the link. I've talked to J.R. at Lonewolf in ID, he says that It will not void your warranty to have it installed on the Glock. He also felt that it was a good design and worked well. I purchased a 9mm converison barrel for my G27 from Lonewolf. These folk's are great to do biz with and being able to fire 9mm and .40 SW in this G27 is nice.

    To paraphrase Gloria Steinem: "A Glock without an external safety is like a fish without a bicycle."
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I would remove the safety and see how it works out for you. Possibly put a NY1 on it rather dealing with the manual safety if you are concerned with carrying.

    Glocks just have to be decocked before field stripping, unload the gun before you disassemble and there is no problem. Everyone says this is a flaw with the glock however the XD is the same and you actually have to pull the trigger while removing the slide.

    and I believe the XD is also poorly designed for that reason.

    Again, this is not the thread for this discussion. Just remember when trumpetting the infallibility of those handling Glocks and the like... if all four rules were always perfectly followed we wouldn't need all four rules. There are four for redundant safety, mess up one and the others should prevent death or injury. Similar thinking should go into designing products for consumer use like guns. Think about it.

    After selling millions of weapons worldwide, I don't think they made a bad choice by not designing a manual safety for their weapons.

    If the gun is unloaded, which it should be when you clean it, this is a nonissue. Pull the trigger on an empty chamber. Big whoodie dooo.

    I carried a 1911 for years and liked it a lot. As I got older and my body started changing (LOL) the 1911 was too large. I went to a Glock 23C .40 and liked it a lot but I missed the old 1911 thumb safety. I had one put on my Glock a couple of years ago and like it very much.

    Each person has different likes and dislikes. I happen to like it.
