Re: safeties

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

Re: safeties

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!

Re: safeties

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.

Anyone.tried.it? Was that clear enough or no?
