Those PT safeties are a bad joke, after having them on my gun for the past 2 weeks. I'm switching. I ordered Wilson high rides. I was originally gonna get the doubletaps but the Wilson are more comfortable.

Another reason I shoot a Glock.

What about them was the bad joke? Quality or did they just not fit your hand? I shot a friends gun that had the low ride style safeties, but I'm not sure if they were PT. They didn't fit my meat hooks, but he has much smaller hands and likes them much better than the high rides.

There are a couple of dudes near me with the slide ride dots on their opens guns. I don't get it. Why, when you can frame mount it?  Lower height over bore? It can't be weight.

Isnt it a 3 gun thing. Easier to get a secure holster for a slide mounted dot.

I like Wilson as well, customer gets what they want. We have had a few ask us to change them  after they try them out. Some love them.

I have slide ride, like the HoB,

My son recently switched to frame mount. Says the added height isn't as bad as he thought it might be. Dot tracking is  somewhat easier.

I haven't shot his enough to get used to it.

Dot tracking is much improved with a frame mount, the additional weight is a non-issue, and the extra height over bore is not even noticeable after like one dryfire session.

As far as the PTs, the way the teardrop/detent is machined they want to turn themselves on all the time. I had Don make them significantly narrower than factory, and then after I got the gun I drilled the detent hole deep enough it is actually difficult to turn on, and yet I still turn the safeties on in recoil with my weak hand, where the meaty part of my thumb contacts the safety.... Damn high grip is killing me.

Curious to see how you like the Wilson high ride safeties...

 

My strong (right) hand presses against the safety when I shoot...  It's causing a callus on the outside knuckle of my right hand...  Thinking about getting a single left side safety so I can get my strong hand grip up higher...  Not sure why no one else uses a single non-ambi safety on their Open guns.

Because if one is good, two is even gooder!

I like ambi safeties because I can turn the safeties off with my left hand when I draw to weak hand. My issue was with my left hand on the left side of the gun, but lots of people (like you) do have issues with the right side safety. I actually do see lots of guns with single side safeties for that reason.
