    The thumb is no longer correctly fitted as it was fitted to the original hammer and sear engagement. The new hammer has changed that and if you like the new hammer then I hope you'll like the new thumb safety that needs to be fitted to your gun.

    Your thumb safety can be welded up and fitted.
