    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.
