Default Magazine safety luv em hate em

the only experience i have with them is my bersa pistols. my thunder plus i cant easily disable it wish i could but the regular thunder i can and have. if they had a heel release i wouldnt worry too much about it but ive had a few instances of inadvertant mag drops where the release got depressed inadvertantly and partialy released the mag.

what are your thoughts on em.

I don't know about other pistols, but two out of three of the Hi Powers I've owned had them. They're nasty. Their removal greatly improved the triggers.

Detest them. Both of the S&W M&Ps I owned had them and it soured me on the platform. I remember searching for instructions on how to disable them and found nothing so I just got rid of the guns...

The Top Request(s), BAR NONE, for any Hi Power user that comes through the shop. Remove the disconnect and touch up the trigger.

Hate them. Hate the idea behind them and I agree with C3 in it being a solution looking for a problem.
