Installing ambidextrous safety on a Kimber Elite Login/Join

I recently gave in to a long-standing urge to own a semi-custom 1911 and bought a Kimber Elite.

I'm happy with my purchase but I'm left-handed and an ambidextrous safety would be a huge improvement.

I know enough to know this is not a project I should attempt myself, but I'd like to know at least a little about what all is involved in the conversion so I'm not completely ignorant when shopping for a gunsmith to do the job.

Thanks for any input.

In simple terms, pulling the old, pushing a frame plug out, and installing the new ambi safety. With an ambi you’ll get a new level on the left side paired to a new one on the right.

I might make the first call to Kimber.

Atlas Gun works has some decent videos about it that will give you an idea of what it involves. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0ow84xh6K7I
