Ambi to single safety

I have an Ultra Raptor II and I'm not really crazy about the ambi safety. What do I need to switch it to a single safety?
I'm wondering what will plug the hole on the right side of the gun?
Is there a pin kit?

Any and all help is appreciated.

Mike

I would think if you purchased a single safety it would have everything you needed. I may have one at the house I removed, I will take a look later tonight and see if I can answer your question better. If I can remember where I put it lol

There's a video on Youtube about this but the guy isn't very good and the video was too boring for me to follow to the end.

It's easy. All you need is the single safety. It will fit in the hole. Nothing else needed, and it will drop in.

I found my single safety, If you want it just send me a pm and I will ship it to you. Cost is free so don't try and talk me down. Also I would buy you ambi safety from you if you want to sell it. If not that's cool. Offer is still good. I will never use this again.

You need a replacement flush sear pin since the new Kimber ambi ones are the kings style. You'll see when you remove it that it protrudes with a dovetail to engage and retain the right side.

It will. Can't guarantee it won't need some fitting. But if he leaves his ambi sear pin in he will see it protrude out the right side of the gun. He. Like carefully file it flush. But if you changed your single sided one to ambi of the new Kimber/King dovetail type you had to replace the sear pin. Where is your old flush one?
