Question - if the sear should break, does the thuimb safety block the hammer from falling?

Good picture, they do help with understanding how the various safeties work.

What'd you do to your gun for those pictures, man? :D

Excellent Pictures John, and thank you VERY much! A man would wear out a keyboard tryin' to describe what you just showed us with those cutaways.:cool:

shield20...No. It will slow it a little...depending on how positively the plunger engages the safety...but it won't stop it.

Thanks for posting. As Tuner says.. it would take all night to explain what your pictures show.

Keep it up...

Thank you for posting, I am going to attempt to fit a new safety in a few days, and that really helped me visualize the surfaces I am working with.

Thanks John, but did you really have to cut away the sideplate just for these pictures?!?

He has a 1911 that has been cut away for display purposes.

Thank you John! Do you mind if this picture is distributed as needed?

Anybody noticed that it also shows a very good view of a secondary/breakaway angle on the sear?

If nobody objects, I'm gonna copy and sticky this one on the smithing forum.
