    Thought I would try this here, as my other thread is going nowhere.

    After years of carrying my M-40, it still bugs me to run about with only a thumb safety, prone to flipping off. I removed the magazine safety within one hour of owning it, as I find the idea assinine, but do agree that most SA auto-pistols need a secondary safety while loaded.
    Looking at the weapon, any ideas how to add a grip safety?
    I dont want to defeat the thumb safety.
    Maybe some light milling on right side to use the old mag safety channel?
