    cominolli safeties for Glocks

    Howdy Folks. I was just wondering if there are any of you with experience with cominolli safeties in their Glocks - good or bad. I am thinking of installing one.

    I know, I know... Glock is perfect, if gaston wanted it that way, well he would have designed it that way. However, some folks do like the safety. Also, rumor has it Glock will put a safety in their .45 entry to the armed services .45 acp pistol competition that is not put on hold according to scuttlebutt. The SW M&P .45 also carries a safety (the dark earth color).

    well, because I learned to shoot w/ the M9/92FS, I have always been comfortable on having to flip the safety before getting the pistol ready to fire. I also read Capt. Ayoob's article on the safety.

    here are some of my questions:
    1. is the safety sturdy?
    2. any problems with perceive delay with flipping the safety and firing the pistol?
    3. does it affect the draw? concealability of the pistol?
    4. who would be a reliable installer of the safety - e.g. glock armorers?
    5. know anybody in CT that can install this?

    thank you in advance. semper gumby.

    From things I've read...Glocks seem indestructable...until you start adding or changing the parts...

    Is this the safty button on the trigger or the one on the left hand side that requiers modification to the frame? The one on the trigger looks like it's easy to install.

    That thing is about as necessary as a safety on a revolver.

    If folks REALLY knew how Glock safeties (3 of them) worked these ridiculous products would stop getting traction in the consumer market.

    No offense just my $.02

    I realy don't see a need for a safty on a DAO unless your trigger pull has been modifiedto a very light setting. Just keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.

    Ditto: That once you understand the basics of the Glock pistol internal design that you'll learn to trust the system as is.

    Basically, the GLOCK is a revolver without a cylinder.
    The pistol just cannot fire unless the trigger is pulled fully rearward.

    So that is correct (above) that it would be exactly like adding a "flip off" safety lever to a Double Action Only Wheel Gun.

    I wouldn't laugh at you if you wanted to add one but, it's really not necessary. Just my humble opinion.

    I believe that it would void your warranty. Glock has a nice habit a fixing them after the warranty but not so sure if you had one of those installed. Get familiar with the Glock and it's design and you'll be more comfortable with it as is.

    My Glock 27 is perfect the way it is. It is very safe and unless you pull the trigger it won't go bang. Seems safe to me. I carry with one in the chamber at all times and I know when I unholster it all I have to do is point and pull the trigger and boom! It's a beautiful world!!!!

    I was afraid my post was going to trigger this kind of reaction. I've researched this thing kind extensively and was just looking for folks out there have a personal experience with this gizmo. that is all.

    FYI... adding the cominolli safety does not void the warranty. this is from one of the many articles that I read about it.

    I shoot glocks in the .40 and .45 almost exclusively and are quite comfortable w/ them. I do appreciate their simplicity, accuracy, and definitely their reliability. However, I did want to add this safety one of my babies.

    so, I guess nobody has any personal experience with this safety or maybe it is just not that popular or common. thanks.
