I was wondering if anyone has ever seen or tried anything to make the safety a little more comfortable to use? I was thinking about maybe a tight fit piece of small rubber or shrink wrap almost... :thinkin:

I had considered silver soldering a bump onto the outside... My concern with tubing or shrink wrap is the size under the lever. Could bind on the gun...
Good post Keith. We should discuss this more and get some ideas out here!

I'm a lefty so I never thought much about it; it's pretty much a two-handed operation for me.

Any improvement would probably be well accepted.

It'll be interesting to see what people come up with.

Screw tip protectors from Lowe's have always been a remedy for this. http://www.lowes.com/pd_137975-37672-88 ... 12670&pl=1

I made a plastic piece to put under the safety. Pushes the safety against the grip better.

I used a 5/16 socket head cap screw to make a small piece that I soldered on to the safety lever for easier use. It already had a straight knurl on it and it made a nice rounded profile. It works great but I wish I had made it a little thinner, it's just a tad too thick.
