I took a King's ambidextrous safety to a local dealer for installation on my Springfield 1911A1. The dealer subcontracts the work to a gunsmith that the dealer has been using for about 15 years. The safety was installed and is functioning fine. However, the gunsmith, for some reason (the dealer will speak to him Monday), decided to file down the right side paddle one rib width. I don't know why it was done; at its full width, there is ample clearance. Am I being unreasonable if I ask the dealer or gunsmith to replace the safety? What would you do?

I would be sure the safety was really 'filed down'. Many 1911 ambi safeties are not the same on both sides. The right side does not stick out as far. GLV

GLV's on the right track....but the actual pad width of the left side is narrower to accomodate the plunger tube. If you compare both safeties side by side, the left one will appear narrower in pad width.
