I'm thinking about buying a Colt Lightweight Defender and have a question about the thumb safety. Being a lefty I want an ambi safety on the gun. I was wondering if I could just swap the Colt's out the ambi safety on my Charles Daly stainless. The CD is supposed to be A 100% clone, but I didn't know the effect on parts sizing, etc. when you move down to a Defender-sized frame. Since the cd is a range gun and the Defender would be for carry it would be a cheap way to get my ambi safety on the Colt. I really don't want to have to drop over $50 into having the local smith replace the Colt safety with an aftermarket part. Thanks in advance,

Thanks for the reminder of my neophite status with these fine firearms guys. As much as I love them, I'm still learning how complex they can be. I was hoping the safety would be a good beginner project to get closer to my babies -guess not.
You're absolutely right about taking safety first, especially for a carry gun. Thanks for the advice everyone!
