Froggie, despite being right handed, I've never been able to operate the S&W slide stops without moving my gun hand. I was issued a 1006 from 1992-2006 and always used my other hand thumb to operate the slide stop. OTOH, left handed, my trigger digit worked fine. However, if you do do your surgery, you're going to limit the resale market. Might want to pick up a spare safety to have for restoration.

Been too long since I had a safety out to comment on flange being sufficient to protect the detent area.

Ambi slide stops have their issues. Strength being one, additional mass that can cause slide stop early being another. Same thing with many extended slide stops.
