I just got the Wilson video on detail stripping the 1911 (and still working up the courage to actually do it...) but the video did not mention how to remove an ambi safety.

Could somebody lay out the details for me? Is it a matter of just pulling the two pieces apart?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, it is. You'll pull the right side off first. Be careful because some are held in by a lever underneath the grip and some are held in by a notch and pin. One look will reveal it to you.

Thanks for the quick reply Bob...its an Ed Brown tactical ambi and I'll take a closer look at it tomorrow - pretty sure it was just the lever beneath the grip type. Thanks again.

Hopefully after you get it back together you won't have any parts laying on your bench... Just kidding. I used to be scared to death to disassemble guns now after 20 plus years No problem

Don't let 'em scare you 500. J.M. Browning designed the 1911 so that a 17 year old farm boy could take it apart and put it back together with no tools...in the dark...so I'm sure you'll have no problem with it. Just be sure and put the left leaf of the sear spring on top of the sear's leg instead of underneath it. And assemble the sear and disconnector as unit and use a toothpick, nail, drill rod, or something to line up the holes in them with the frame hole and you've got it whipped.
