    NO.

    Useless.

    Redundant.

    Bad.

    I'd rather go down on a crack whore named "Sandpaper Cindy" than install one on my Glock.

    Oh cool another thing to go wrong!

    IF Ten-Ring Precision is the same company (Commonoli Corporation) mentioned in the letter from Glock, then Glock says they will honor the warranty. Based on my experience with warranty claims, here is how it will likely go:

    1 - You have a mysterious problem with the gun. You call Glock and they say, "Sure send it in!"
    2 - Glock sends the gun back without fixing it and blames the problem on the aftermarket modifications.
    3 - You call Ten-Ring Precision and they say, "Sure send it in!"
    4 - Ten-Ring Precision sends the gun back without fixing it and blames the problem on the Glock components.

    The only safety is your finger. Keep it away from the freaking trigger

    I think it is supposed to be geared toward the folks who don't want to get Glocks because they consider them a "plastic gun with no safety"

    Why muck up a perfectly fine gun? If you want a safety, then buy one that has a safety from the factory.

    lets say you got this and had a malfunction of some type would Glock honour the warranty and fix it or would they say since it was modified its your own probelem?? just out of curiosity...

    EDIT: checked the link and it said it will not void the warranty, find that hard to believe...

    I think if I felt that I needed a thumb safety I would by the Springfield XD or Smith M&P that is factory built with a safety.



    I don't know anyone who has the Glock aftermarket thumb safety, but most of the people I know realize your trigger finger and your brain are the best safety.

    I don't understand the need or desire. If you don't trust Glock without an external safety, Glock says go somewhere else. This is not a Glock Safety. It's a third party after market option. Glock won't put it on because they know there's no justification to add a 4th safety to their already safe gun.

    Just another thing to hang off your gun that serves no purpose. Even the people that designed it know it's useless, but it will make them a buck. It's not about improving the glock, it's about the almighty dollar.
