29ES Extended Manual Safety LH
« on: January 29, 2018, 07:31:23 PM »
Anyone have one of these on their CGWs. They have my 75B and I just keep adding to my build. I am sure they are getting tired of all the updates. I would say that most of the time I run my 75B in DA/SA mode but it might also be run cocked and locked because I run 1911s and BHPs that way. I have no real issues with the stock safety other than it is a little thin and does not have that 1911 positive click. Does the CGW 29ES have a more positive feel?

My understanding is that changing the safety spring (rather than the safety iteself) would provide a more positive click. One of the reasons why the 75 SA has a more positive click is that it uses two safety springs, rather than one on the standard 75.

Thanks that is the exact info that CGW gave me. I still went with the extended safety. LOL

I can confirm that swapping out the safety spring totally changes the stock mushy safety to a positive clicking safety. It was a $4.00 upgrade.

But I was looking at that Cajun safety because I find that my thumb is too short to comfortably engage the stock safety without adjusting my grip. Will this Cajun's safety help make it slightly easier for me to swipe on-off? Does anyone who has had this installed notice that it shorts the reach?

I’ve got them on my 97B and SP01 Compact. My 75B SA came with one already on it. Handy place to rest your thumb while shooting.

For me it does not change the reach much but it is a better lever if that makes sense. It is more 1911 like but and if you shoot a lot of 1911 or BHP it feels more natural than the stock CZ part IMHO.

I have a Compact Shadow, is it easy to change the safety lever to the extended like on my full size shadow?

What would I need to buy?
