I've read numerous posts both for and against having a 'thumb safety' but none the less I want one... I know that one has to be careful and protect the trigger from all managers of 'engagement' [ie index finger, shirt, collar, jacket, etc.] but I still feel the need for a safety...



I was wondering, is it possible to have a thumb safety added to the MP40 since its apparently available on the military 45acp version? Will L G

I don't think any one knows for sure but only time will tell. I wouldn't look for one to be available until mid-2007 IF they do decide to produce one.

Well, I'm holding out for the .45 and I'm wondering if/hoping that the thumb safety in the .45 will be removable. Along the same lines as the mag safety and (I think) internal locks on the .40 and 9.



Some days I think I really want the thumb safety, other days I'm sure I don't. I suppose what that really means is that I can live with either. I'm sure this schizoid thinking is the result of going back and forth between a Glock and 1911. Sigh....

I'm used to having a thumb safety available... Granted I'm generally pretty cautious about touching the trigger but accidents to happen and I can honestly say having a safety enabled has saved me from having to do some explaining and possibly having to have a shirt and jacket 'repaired'... at least on one or two occassions. I've owned fire arms on and off for years and have come to love my safety ;-)



I know retro-fitting one with a thumb safety can't be too hard...hell, all one would need would be an extention of the sear lock located near the rear of the weapon... I don't think anything else would be needed... Will L G
