    Yep... & the MA compliant didn't stay on the market long it appears...I would definitely get myself hurt with that setup!

    I mean yeah big time ........ now if you have really never Shot a 1911 then you would be fine with that safety and or you would have to really practice your azz off to be safe (competent) with it....even then for me when I do the grab and ready to go grip its automatic, and like you bill, I would definitely get hurt with that as well .....

    I wonder why Kahr did the safety that way....... maybe due to the guns internal workings it was more feasible ?
    Even on my cheap azz beater Taurus Millennium G2, which has a safety .... it works same as a 1911 .... or I wouldn't have bought it ?

    The nickel Mauser HSc (Interarms) I carried off-duty had a safety that was more of an end of thumb push forward to flip up as it was much further forward - very intuitive to use in this configuration...no side slide release (mag actuated). The location further back on the frame & angle of the Kahr version with more of an upward movement is what I couldn't easily adjust to in carrying 1911's...at least from a visual perspective.

    I've become unable to understand much of what Kahr does (and doesn't do), these days. Though in this case it would not surprise me to learn that MA had input into how the mechanism functions.

    Who knows ....... I think they as are other gun makers moving to designs with features that would be appreciated or considered desirable by the casual gun purchasers in today’s market ?

    I guess time will tell. Here's hoping that they come out with some really cool and innovative stuff again.
