Kimber 1911 Ambi Safety

Hello Everybody
I would like to install a ambi safety on my Pro Carry II. Thinking about ordering the Kimber one and I'm just wondering if it is a drop in kind of operation or some fitting may be required?

I've never liked them, but then I've never needed one, but I'm sure someone will come along that can answer you.

Well, to answer your question. Yes, it should be drop in. I bought the Kimber part from LGS, who happens to be where my gunsmith works. He even put it in for me took him less than 15 min. that included going up and down the stairs to his work shop.
I changed mine from extended to the short ambi.

Holy crap! When's the last time you cleaned that gun? I think you've got stuff growing on the trigger.

This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My rifle, without me, is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will... My rifle and myself know that what counts in this war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, nor the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit... My rifle is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its barrel. I will ever guard it against the ravages of weather and damage as I will ever guard my legs, my arms, my eyes and my heart against damage. I will keep my rifle clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will... Before God, I swear this creed. My rifle and myself are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life. So be it, until victory is America's and there is no enemy, but peace!
