Default Disabling grip safety on M590A1Spx...is it possible?

Not the biggest shooter in here but this thing is annoying and I really don't think gorilla tape is a suitable fix. Can this grip safety be disabled without extreme modification or replacement?

Because they suck! I can't hit the target with a pistol that has one, my hand just can't move the right angle.

Simple solution, buy a M&P Shield like I did.

Agreed, it unnaturally forces the hand, even with longer fingers. I understand this was a military variant, the 590, and I think Moss incorporated this type of safety in more than just 590. It sucks and I don't see how the military, in a pinch, effectively uses this (then again, I'm not well trained either). Maybe a smithy can replace it with some sort of standard safety? I haven't been able to find one still operating locally.

Its a home and land defense tool (shells loaded blank, bird, buck then slug). Its not left off of safety but if I need to cycle quickly, I'd be a little screwed. Guess I'll rely on the bayonet lol.

THIS is why I've said for 40 years that the Browning HiPower has corrected the deficiencies of the 1911 design

Not a Mossy fan. I couldn't find a pic of the "grip safety". Generally most traditional grip safety's can be pinned in place to disable them. Does it have another safety?

Adding a magazine safety on the hi power isn't an improvement, I'd rather a single shot than a no shot because the magazine was lost. This undesirable feature can be disabled.

Im not familiar with it either, nor could I find a pic of it.

Can you simply replace the parts needed with standard 590 parts? Probably the best way to go.

Cheap way to go would be to simply pin it in place in some fashion, if possible.


I agree, the mag safety wasnt the best thing on the High Powers, but at least they did away with the grip safety.

As you mentioned, removing the mag safety is easy enough, and some seem to think they get a better trigger when you do so.

Ive done it on a couple, and really didnt notice the trigger was any better, but its nice the mags now drop free, and the gun will shoot without the mag.

My son informed me its a standard feature now days (he bought it for me). Believe it or not, I'm a machinist...now I feel like an idiot. Still, that is very ill-placed, behind the trigger guard and horribly impossible for me to get comfortable with. I shoot long arms lefty too, making it even worse.

My son went through it, he called me a moron...it would be nice if ya'll wouldn't take me as a moron. He told me its an action/slide lock. I'll be damned though because I had an S&W that the action locked automatically after racking it...and I've only owned 2 shotguns. Still, it sux. Why not build like that old S&W? Rack and don't worry until the next round?

That would explain why we couldn't find a "grip safety". No harm done, at least you took the time and made the effort to figure out the weapon now, before you needed it.

That action lock locks the bolt in the in battery position. It only loks when the gun is cocked. It automatically drops and releases the bolt to pump the next round when the gun has been fired. Make sure you're empty and dry fire your gun a few dozen times. You'll not need the release during normal shooting. You only use it when you're opening a cocked gun for some reason.
