NOTICE: Safariland has released a new 7TS 1911 holster, and will be discontinuing the Kydex version. This Nub Mod is designed for the older style 1911 holsters as imaged. If You have the new 7TS holster you need THIS Nub Mod.
This Nub Mod is the only Nub Mod suitable for use with a 1911 holster that has the large 'safety shield' built into the body of the holster. A slightly narrowed profile on the gun side, and a small beveled edge allow it to function with the 1911 holster without any interference.
Fits just inside of the 'safety shield', so it will also work with after-market large safeties. If you remove the safety shield you MAY be able to use an ALS Nub Mod to clear the weapon safety properly, depending on the size of your safety. See last Image.
This does NOT fit Level III Holsters!
The reversed angle matches up with the pad of your thumb sooner than the factory button. You will find the gun in your hand just by grabbing it. Weak hand drawing becomes faster as well.
The wider release button means you have even less potential to miss the activation, especially on thigh rigs or mounting systems that push the holster away from your body.
If you have ever found yourself pulling up on the gun before hitting the release you've noticed that gun is difficult to almost impossible to get out. The additional leverage of the Nub Mod fixes this stress induced or poor training problem if it ever arises due to the increased surface area for the thumb to engage.
Simply press the larger nub piece over the factory button from the inside of the holster. Align the smaller narrow piece with the top of the larger one. Insert screw and tighten with supplied allen wrench. You may add Loc Tite or finger nail polish to the threads if desired.
Made in the U.S.A. Patent Pending.
User assumes any risk associated with modifying their holster.
