View Full Version : Mag Safety Questions
March 14, 2008, 20:06
Does everybody usually leave these parts in their HP's?
I have two, both with the mag safety removed. Where can I find the parts to replace them? How many parts/ what parts make up the mag safety?
Thanks for any info. JT

I removed mine right away and have never looked back, but that's just me. I'm not sure where you might be able to buy them, though.

I also removed mine first day I got them.
What an improvement!

On my modern HP's I removed the disconnect to get a decent trigger pull. On the WWII Inglis pistols I have, they are fine with them in.

It is not a a "mag safety" it is a "mag disconnect"
there is nothing safe about it.
it is a dangerous liability to have on a fighting handgun. It prevents the chambered round from being fired, should you drop the magazine in a scuffle, or during a magazine change, or if your mag should become damaged.
I recommend removal from all handguns - unless you are a stupid moron who can't follow basic firearm safety, in which case I recommend filling the mag well with cement.
If you want mag disconnect parts, I can provide the spring and paddle. Just send me a self-addressed, stamped, padded envelope.
there are three parts - the spring, paddle and pin, but the pin is usually replaced in the trigger to fill the hole.

Thank you for that info. Seems everybody calls it/them a "mag safety", so that is what I figured it was. I got two hp's from an in-law, who got them at a gun store that had taken them in trade from an individual. The original owner had removed them, and I figured I'd return them back to the way were. Liability issue????, don't know. The original owner had etched his name or some other info into the side of the slide on one of them, and we took a stone and removed the etching. I now need to get it refinished, and am looking for someone to do that. Just thought it would be good to have them complete, but will have to think about it some more. Thanks again. Might contact you to work on it.
