HELP! Ambi Safety Fell Off?

901 6
I have a 4 day tactical shoot coming up tomorrow.

A couple of days ago, I went out and bought a second Springfield TRP, as a backup gun to my S.S. Springfield TRP.

I returned from the range after putting 375 rds though the new TRP (BTW, it shot better than my old one) and I took off the grip panels. The right side ambi-safety FELL OFF (right hand shooter, behind the gun). No force. It just fell of off the gun.

Is this a safety issue? I've never had an ambi-safety do this before.

Is there a quick fix for this? Do you just push it in, pull it off that easy?

It actually does pull off easy. That is why the right grip panel has the cut away to hold it in place. I had one come off of my Kimber Gold Match as I was trying to fit it into a Ransom Rest. Squeeze it a little and gently push it back in.

Thanks Boys that seemed to do the trick.

I squeezed it a little and she fit back in there real snug.

You boys saved the day, I leave tomorrow at 5:00 AM, and I wanted to take this gun. I let y'all know how she preformed.

I find that after a lot of lefty practice my STI ambi works itself a little bit loose. It annoys me so I usually pinch it closed a bit in a vise. The King's style (new Kimber version) looks interesting and I may give it a try eventually.
