    You can fit a safety yourself. Watch a few videos and decide if you think you want to try.

    It's not hard. You can see what needs to be filed once it's apart. If you've taken one apart before.

    If you are wanting an ambi safety.I like the sigs. They use a pin to hold the right side lever in, not the grip panel

    Another vote for Bob. He also has a decent and inexpensive membership rifle and pistol range.

    I say take the gun to lock stock and barrel in Grantville and let Tommy Hawks work on it. He is not stuck up and is a very competent gunsmith.
