Either manual safety body can only move a very small amount latterally after the firing pin is in place. (after assembly)

The amount of this lateral movement corresponds with the gauge between the firing pin and the firing pin cavity in the slide, and the firing pin hole in the lever itself. This movement is typically approx .020"-.025".
