I may be getting CT grips for Christmas and I'd like to install them on my Loaded Champion. It has the ambi safety though and I don't think the grips will allow the use of the safety on the right side.

What are my options for a different safety or modifying mine to fit?

If I buy a new safety switch is it something I could install on my own or is that a gunsmith only install?

Thanks.

according to the pic, ambi safety isn't a problem. If the grips don't have the ambi cutout, just carefully trim to fit.

Carefully trim the safety?


What's the best way to do that?

I think he means carefully trim the grips.

It looks like the right side is where the laser's guts are. Hrm. I'll have to wait and see what these things look like first.

I thought I read something here about trimming down the safety switch. I'll have to search some more.

So if I were to shorten the right side on my own....what would be the best way to go about it?


Take the pistol apart, lock the frame down and go at the safety with the dreaded dremel?

That may get ugly. Would probably be fun though.

Thanks. It is Stainless though. So I guess I'd just have to file it real good and smooth.

Well right now it is just a suspected gift. If I end up getting them or buying them I'll post up the work here.

I don't imagine it will be that hard. We'll see.
