    I was told, and granted, I'm a novice, that a safety can be added to a LC9s Pro. Does anyone care to comment on this? I would like to give mine to my wife but want her to have a safety. If it cannot be done, I will buy her another weapon.

    Short of being a very accomplished gunsmith, doubt very much it can be done.

Yes, it is a fantastic trigger but it is a very light trigger. I have no problems with using a safety as I have trained with them all my life and now just a natural muscle memory skill. No you could not add a safety. But you should not have a problem selling it. I do not know what kind of gun you will get her, but I would really wait for the New Taurus Spectrum TO COME OUT. Let her pick the color. It looks like it will have a good safe trigger with a 7-9 lb pull. And she will not have to train with using a safety. Good luck.
    I agree with your advice, but remember, dennisjk: "Be not the first by whom the new is tried".

    Welcome to the forum dennisjk! you might want to just take the hit and trade it for the standard LC9s. It has the manual safety. Denny

    I agree with ETS - rather than try to modify your present pistol, it would be better to sell it and get one with a safety.

    Actually, as previously stated in another thread(I think), I removed the mag. disconnect safety from my LC9s standard, leaving me with, what I consider ideal-----a single, manual safety in the standard location.

    Sorry, I misunderstood. The original post talked about adding a safety to an LC9S Pro.

    Yeah, I believe it was decided that adding a safety to the Pro would be a gunsmithing impossibility.
