I just bought a M1911 MkII and it came 4 days ago. Yesterday when i was shooting it the thumb safety stopped working. What happens is when i pull the trigger the thumb safety goes down a little bit, which disengages it and the hammer releases. Unfortunately, the safety is still up enough to block the slide from going back. So, the entire mag of gas will shoot out of the mag if I pull the trigger while the safety is on. This causes a problem when I draw the gun in a game and the safety engages when I don't want it to. I just need to find out why the safety stopped working so I can fix it.

I have the metal barrel and use propane so I think that the warranty is voided. Anyway, does anyone have an idea on whats happening and how to fix it?

I just filed down the piece on the left safety lever that goes into the guts of the gun. It was a little worn down so I just put a nice flat edge to it. Its hard to explain without a picture. I might be able to put a picture up in a couple days.
