    Looks good. Will these fit a Shield Plus or just the regular Shield 1.0/2.0?

    Sorry to resurrect an inactive thread, but I am very interested in this! Did this eventually make it to production, and if so, is it still possible to buy? I'd be in for at least two, and possible two more for friends with Shields. Thanks!

    After input from forum members, shooting trials and numerous revisions the the thumb safety project is completed.
    Black Nitride was selected as the coating that most closely matches the host and for its durability. The angle of the safety is with consideration of support hand and SHO. It is lowered it as much as possible yet avoids digging into the support hand in recoil and to also maximize contact between strong and weak hand.
    If you would like to purchase one of these please PM me and we will work out payment and shipping if one of the following doesnt work for you.
    USPS flat rate is 10.20
    UPS flat rate is 13.35

    I sanded the factory lever and added a "glob" of epoxy and it works much better.

FWIW, mine is not that stiff, but Iíve read of others who have very stiff thumb safeties.

The current iteration places the thumb safety too low in the shooting position and is unnecessarily wide, relative to what it could be.

    I appreciate the machined aspects of this. I personally would setup and machine the base separately and weld on a paddle for prototyping, so that you can adjust as needed as opposed to constantly machining a new piece.

    As far as finishing, bead blasting and parkerizing is probably one of the lowest setup cost / lowest labor options for your fabricator friend to apply Nd it would be a good base if someone wanted to apply air cure cerakote or other low temp coatings.
