Wilson Combat has announced the release of their Retro Bullet Proof thumb safety, featuring a thumb tab that’s been reshaped for a traditional low profile closely resembling the original John Browning 1911 designed part. According to the product listing, the Retro safety is precision machined from a block of hardened billet steel, and it’s contoured around the edges. In addition, the safety shaft is cut to ensure a snug fit in even the most oversize 1911. This thumb safety requires minimal fitting to the internal safety lug. This product comes in two different finishes: satin polished blue and polished stainless steel.

“In the world of high-performance handguns, Wilson Combat Bullet Proof parts stand alone for performance, construction and value,” the product listing reads. “All Wilson Combat Bullet Proof parts are CNC machined from solid steel billets and precisely engineered for an absolutely perfect fit-no cheap castings or inferior, imported injection molded parts will ever wear the Bullet Proof name.”

The Retro Bullet Proof thumb safety is listed at a manufacturer suggested retail price of $79.95.
