    I use bottom safety Jewell triggers on my Lawton 7500s and 8000 actions. To install a top safety you will need to mill out a slot for the top safety leaver on the side of the action. The safety leaver may need to be longer than stock also. I will look at the action and a Remington trigger at my shop tomorrow and see if it can be done.
