    Design Enhancements For Superior Performance; Standard & Ambidextrous Models Novak takes the 1911 safety a step further with streamlined styling and several operating enhancements. A re-designed detent enables extremely positive engagement and helps hold the plunger tube against the frame to keep it from working loose. The right-hand paddle on the ambidextrous model is keyed and pinned to the shaft to prevent flex and eliminate the need for the grip to hold the right lever in place. It also permits a much slimmer paddle that works with any grip, including LaserGrips. Completely “carry beveled” with all sharp edges removed for shooter comfort and control.

  • 1911 EXTREME SERVICE THUMB SAFETY HARRISON DESIGN & CONSULTING
    $74.99 - $79.99

    Item Code: #453217907

    Availability: In stock

    The Extreme Service thumb safety is the result of years of design and testing to develop a thumb safety that is ergonomically comfortable, rugged in construction and offers unique features that solve many of the problems with existing designs. The thumb shelf has an arced shape that is sculpted to meet the "plate" portion of the safety. The shelf is lowered slightly and rotated on the plate to better match up to the human hand. This makes the safety more comfortable in use over extended firing sessions. The positioning of the thumb shelf also helps keep the palm of your hand in deeper, more solid contact with the grip safety, so it's less likely that you'll have a failure to get the grip safety depressed and then keep it depressed, which could render your pistol unfireable at the worst time. The plate is made thicker than most other brands and is configured so that the safety plunger bears fully on the front of the plate, eliminating side thrust loading from being exerted against your plunger tube which can eventually loosen the tube’s mounting, allowing the plunger pin to climb over the safety's plate, potentially rendering the gun unfireable. An ample detent pocket and radius give a positive "click" as you move the safety on and off. The pivot shaft joins the plate with a generous radius which is crucial to prevent stress breakage of the plate/shaft joint as found on other brands. The blocking lug has an extra fitting pad on the rear of the lug allowing the gunsmith to regulate how far down the thumb safety can swing, which keeps the safety's plate from overhanging the edge of the frame. An industry first! The rear edge of the plate is beveled and blended where it meets the back edge of the frame, a feature lacking on other brands. Looks great and a complimentary design to the Harrison Design Extreme Service Slide Stop. On HD453 and HD454 the narrowed thumb shelf has an arced shape that is scuplted to meet the "plate" portion of the safety. The shelf is lowered slightly and rotated on the plate to better match up to the human thumb. This makes the safety more comfortable in use over extended firing sessions.

    Beavertail grip safety machined from solid barstock is left slightly oversized at critical points to allow the gunsmith to achieve a true custom fit.

Overall length is longer at the bottom and the angle is a match to fill the gap between the mainspring housing and the safety. Radius is .245" to fit frames that are pre-cut to .250". Pin hole is finish reamed to .158" to further improve fit and function. Large contact pad ensures positive engagement when the hand grasps the gun. .220 Radius grip safeties are made to fit Springfield and Caspian frames.
