RECOILtv DIY (s01e02): Fitting a 1911 Thumb Safety

As anyone who has one knows, 1911s are finicky guns that often need some love to get them working reliably. If you own a 1911 and have the urge to tinker with custom parts, follow along as 1911 guru Jason Burton of Heirloom Precision shows us how to fit a thumb safety. Get out your rattail file and bench block so you can hot rod your pistol with some new gear. RECOILtv is here to show you that fitting a 1911 thumb safety can be a fun project to do on your own.
