A guy I know has a 1911 that he tweaked a bit a long time ago. It has a safety on it that I'd never seen before; I'll try and describe it.

It's defining characteristic is the short thumb pad. While it's dimensions were those of a std milspec safety, it seemed that the rear half of the pad had been cut out leaving just a 1/4" block of material to actually press on.

This looked a little weird, but it felt great. I have smallish hands and some safeties push uncomfortably on the inside of my thumb; this applied no such pressure.

The guy doesn't remember what model it is but does know that it came like that; he didn't modify it, tho I think it would be easy enough to do.

Anyone have any ideas?
