I recently sent a pistol to Kimber for re-finish and sights (See Kimber thread: Great Customer Service -- With a Twist). A technician called me and said he thought he detected a "sear click," and would investigate further and fix it. When the packing list came it said, "Thumb safety defective - sear click."

What exactly is a sear click?

How does replacing the thumb safety address a sear click?

Was this possibly a MIM issue?

There is a test of the thumb safety where you engage the safety and pull the trigger. You then carefully pull the hammer back and listen for the click of the sear falling back into place. If you hear the click, the thumb safety allowed the sear to move which is a bad thing. This means the thumb safety was incorrectly fitted. The fix is to replace and correctly fit the thumb safety so the sear will not move when you pull the trigger with the thumb safety engaged.
