    im looking for a 1911 smith in the north atl area because i may be in the market for a decent commander length 1911 and if i cant find one with an ambi safety in my price range i may just buy one with a RH thumb safety and have one installed. Any thoughts? Thx.

    A thumb safety isn't that hard to fit. I Wanted what you didn't. I bought a 1911 ambi and converted it to strong side.
    All the thumb safeties are over sized. A fine file and whet stone is all that is needed. A thumb safety fitting doesn't require a .001" tolerance.
    All material is taken from here...in the red

    John does great work. He bobtailed my Kimber and it looks like it was made that way.

    I've delt with both Andy and John Harrison..

    I will never do business with Andy again.. Terrible businessman. Completely fly by night.

    John Harrison is one of the best in the business.. This guy shits excellence.

    Take your gun to John, you won't get better work.
