    The Big Horn has a Rem. 700 trigger hanger, that's what it'll take. What's wrong with the 2 position safety?

    i don't like how out in the open they are. to easy to accidentally knock off. obviously one should never rely on their safety, but i would just prefer a tang safety or a winchester style. i wouldn't even mind if it were a little more low profile like a cz or tikka, but the remmy style is like a light switch!

    has anyone tried one offing a tang safety using the standard remmy trigger safety but replacing the lever with an angled one going to a tang slide?

    PT&G makes a bolt safety that locks the firing pin that can be used in conjunction with the
    Rem Safety or independent of it.

    You need to buy the firing pin and bolt safety together if you don't have a good smith to fit it.

    In the original post yes i was referring to a winchester style. But in the most recent post im asking.if anyone has tried to replace.the factory safety lever with one that is angled and never sticks.up out of the stock.amd instead.travels.rearward to a one offed sliding tang button? Anyone.tried.it? Was that clear enough or no?
