    I have a right handed 1100 LT-20 that I need to convert over to a left hand safety. Midway makes a kit for $15 but I'm not sure if this is a gunsmith job or not. Any body out there done this?

    assuming the 20g is the same as the 12. The safety should drop in. You remove the trigger group. You will see the pin holding the spring and ball above the safety. I use a tooth pick once the pin is freed up. Then slowly remove pick to remove spring and ball. Safety will now slide out. install the LH safety so red indicator is on the right side reinstall ball spring and retaining pin. Old school was to drill a new hole on opposite side of exsisting spring/ball hole then flip factory safty. Tanks rifle shop has some good remington shotgun stuff. I suffer from leftsaftyitis. about every 6 shots or so the right hand safty will sneak on when shooting lefty.

    Uncle Mike's used to make a LH safety for 1100s but their lawyers put a stop to that. Does anybody else still make these?
