Well, as the old saying goes... 'ask, and you shall receive'.
I talked to the fellow who makes the pieces. He had said that since they switched to the new design they no longer use those... but, they had some extra lying around and that if I were willing to cover the postage he'd send one out gratis. Rock on Wise Lite, and thanks! Hopefully there's nothing else I'm missing that I don't know about.
..btw, I asked him why they switched designs on the grip. He simply stated, 'it's easier'.
So... is there no safety on the new version?? or does the safety just work differently?
