Left hand shooter, looking at an A391 which fits me very well. The only question I can't get answered locally is, how do you get the safety switched over?
I will tell you how to switch the safety, but a word of caution is in order. Someone on the forum attempted the conversion and lost the spring, and it is a very small spring!
Therefore, choose a place where you will be able locate a tiny object on the floor, which definitely leaves out carpeting, in the event the $%^&* thing flies off into parts unknown.
Start humming the tune, "Fools Rush In." If time permits, take a crash course in EOD (Explosive Ordinance Disposal
for you non-military types.)
You should stabilize the receiver in a vise, Workmate or some-such. Be sure to have a hand towel handy to wipe away the beads of sweat that are sure to appear on your furrowed brow during the procedure.
You will need a tool that depresses the little "plunger" that locks the crossbolt in the safe and off-safe position. While the Beretta 391 manual, aka Manuale di Istruzione
, calls for the use of a "drift punch" to accomplish the switch, I used a dental pick, flattened on one end, filed square and thin to allow for wedging the tip of the tool between and plunger and the crossbolt. With the button pushed down and flush with the receiver, remove the cross-bolt. This is the tricky part. Ideally, at this point you remove the bolt, turn it around, replace it in the gun, and release the button, at which point a reassuring click is heard, and the deed is done. My spring got away from me, but not far, and I was able to replace it and the plunger to finish the job.
If you lack patience, a steady hand, belief in a Supreme Being, crystal-clear near sightedness or one of those head-mounted magnifying gizmos, or the ability to fervently recite the Hail Mary, then you should consider taking your treasure to a most useful of God's creatures, the competantus gunsmithius
and pay him to do it. I can't imagine that it would be very expensive.
