I'm in the process of the final fitting of everything on a 1911 (pre A1) and I'm experiencing a small problem. I've had to go with all new internals on this build, (trigger is the only original internal part) including a new Caspian Classic frame. So far, everything is working out textbook except the thumb safety. With the hammer cocked, I installed the safety. Pulled the trigger and dropped the hammer and then tried to cock it. Something with the safety has locked it up and I had to really force the hammer back to disassemble averything. I did notice that the original Colt thumb safety now has a small area on the tip dug into it where I forced the hammer back. This also happened with the original internal parts too.
for the life of me, I cannot find anything in Kunhausens book on fitting a thumb safety. Ant tips??

That was with the slide on :scratch:
Besides, the safety is in the lowered position, ready to fire, I pulled the trigger and everything worked normal. Just could not recock hammer without a LOT of force.
