I was considering going with the decock only mod and cutting off the right side flush to be a single side decock only. If it can move, that may be a bad idea.


The manual safety body is installed into the left side of the slide, and cannot move any further to the right after being fully inserted because of the profile of the left side lever body itself.

The "single sided" safety body still has a slight amount of lateral movement, even after the firing pin is in place. This is normal.
