Kimber and King's Safeties Supply?

Hello,

King's Gunworks and Kimber both make a very similar ambidextrous safety, one that uses a special hammer pin to retain the right side safety.

Both have been out forever. I called Kimber a couple months ago and was told they'd have them in two weeks. They never showed up on the website for sale, as promised.

What's going on here? Have we had a sudden surge of left handers shooting the 1911 pistol?

Anyone have a clue?

Thanks,

Josh <><

Josh,

As of a couple of weeks ago, King's had WIDE paddle ambis in stock. I don't think they show up on their "in stock" list, but if you press and they check with the shop, I think you can get one.
That configuration will allow you to shape the left-side paddle as desired. The right side paddle is the normal size.

Thank you! I kept getting told they were out of stock.
