Safety, Is it properly engaging ?

Just got this 1911 and I haven't had a chance to shoot her yet. But in checking the weapon I've found that there isn't alot of travel in the safety when you engage it and it seems to slip rather easily out of engagment when pressure is applied. I know that the Taurus PT 92-99 and PT 100 have a much more pronounced feeling when the safety is engaged.

Is this common to all 1911 designs or might something be wrong ?

My safety seems pretty crisp, but the again I am not used to a pistol with a safety since my only other pistol owned is a Ruger P97 and safeties aren't allowed on those!
