There are several aftermarket makers of Ambi-safeties with each having its own hold it in place design. What you discribe would seem to be one design that snaps together. Other designs use small set crews or cross pins....if there is no evidence of amechanical fastner..then it is likely a snap or press fit. You might want to consult the TECH STAFF at www.brownells.com, they supply such items to the market and can advise..that said.. the safety is a very important part. God forbid that you should ever have to use the gun in defense of yourself or a loved one...but I can tell you this...if there is ever an incident..attornies will run roughshod over you for any aftermarket item..so unless you are a pistolsmith with qualifications..the first step in the installation is the use of a competent gunsmith...the Tech Crew ar brownells can assit with that as can the Gunsmith Locator Link at www.midwayusa.com
I believe this safety was sold under the name "Ambi-Dex" who don't come up in a Google search. Does anyone have a set of installation instructions they would be willing to copy and send to me for a reasonable fee?
Paul...here's a long shot..but this outfit specializes in such things...Check with ABBY on www.cornellpubs.com..I believe their website also has a page where you can post "wants"........"For sale" and "I need items"........AND have you Googled for any Browning High Power on line forums? Also ask at www.browning.com if they have any knowledge of this part.......PAUL...after writing this entry, I went to www.brownells.com and searched their browning Hi-Power products and came up with these numbers. 206-035-010 and 206-035-011 and 206-035-013 all ambi-Dex safteies for the Browning Hi-Power. You can download the instruction sheet for this product FREE...it may be of some help in making an installation..if nothing else..it should make note of any particular sore spots you have to be aware of. BTW they are all by the same maker whose name appears to be close to what you have..pictures also so you can compare...
Zeke, thanks for the info; I'll check it out.
Zeke, Quick Reply part II: I went to the Brownell's site. The ambi safeties in their catalog are Cylinder&Slide products. The pivot shaft extends through the slide and the second lever is pinned to it; mine is different. Also, I couldn't see where to download the instructions. Thanks again, PB
I bought an ambi safety for a 1911 and it had an "interference fit” go-together like the one you are describing it. It has to be forced to bend out and fit. It can't be seperated for removal without risking scratching the frame. The Browning HP ambi safety that I purchased for my FM90 browning clone had a roll pin through the right hand safety lever and through shaft on the left hand safety lever. George M.
Regarding an ambidextrous safety for the Springfield SA-35 Hi-Power, Cylinder and Slides offers an ambidextrous safety that works quite well. 08/05/2022.
