Fully machined from barstock steel for unbeatable quality and no chance of warpage or porosity. Shaped for shooting comfort, the lever is angled slightly to keep the thumb from contacting the slide and has a double angle to fit the thumb perfectly. Uses a special hammer pin (included) to hold the safety securely, eliminating the need to modify the grips. Designed for all 1911 type frames. Requires minor gunsmith fitting for safe operation and includes complete instructions.

3 lever profiles available

Match: widest profile levers at 0.247, perfect for matches, left hand stages, and the “high thumb” shooting style.


Hammer pins for our machined ambi thumb safety, made 0.005″ longer for fitting to frames that are wider, such as STI 2011 frames, are available

Great Competition Safety

Review by Adam on 8/31/2018

I installed this on my STI DVC. I shoot with a high ride thumb and the factory STI safety was too small and sharp for my liking, getting uncomfortable during high round count stages. This Ed Brown safety is closer to a rectangle in shape than the factory crescent shape, but it’s not so big that I’d fear the safety flipping off inadvertently in a dump bucket. It’s very stout and I got mine fitted perfectly for good crisp engagement.

Check Hammer pin length measurement

Review by Brad on 1/26/2018

Be sure to measure the hammer pin length or test in your frame. A hammer pin comes with this Ed Brown Machined Wide Ambi to retain right side thumb safety. I would not use on STI, PT, or JEM 2011 type frames. I have all three frames and pin is to short and will not retain right side thumb safety. I gave the safety a three rating only because it is of limited application. Probably okay for 1911 frames. RE: These are for 1911 frames. We have a pin that makes these work in 2011 frames.
