Extra-wide safeties SS legal?

I run an extra-wide Limcat safety on my 2011 in limited, and I love it the extra shelf for my thumb. I'm trying to figure out if it would still be legal to run in SS on a 1911 and if it would fit in the box? Anyone have any experience running any of the larger safeties on 1911s? I'd prefer to do an ambi, but I might only have room for a single side...

In 2010 I was running an STI Trojan with the SV extra wide Ambi safety. I had to take quite a bit off of the right side as that was the side that I wanted to trim... I may have had to take a little off the left also, but it fit in the Box just fine.

"handgun with empty magazine inserted must fit wholly within a box with internal dimensions of 8 15/16” x 6” x 1 5/8” (tolerance +1/16”, -0”) (8.938” x 6” x 1.625”) (227.01mm x 152.40mm x 41.28mm)"

 

How wide is your Limited gun at the safety lever?

How wide is your 1911, there?
