    The only trades I'd be interested in is the Desert Tech SRS1 in 338 Lapua, better yet, the Akley Improved version. The other is a Desert Tech HTI...

    I have one of these nice ones from Shawn, and I hope your safety is safer than mine!! I have told Shawn about it firing when safe is put to fire position, and his reply is I can see how it might get bound up like that??? But does nothing at all about fixing it?? I won't have another one!!

    Just so I can clear this up a little, you guys didn't quite get the whole conversation. The issue was that when the safety was placed in the middle position (which it doesn't have ) and you pull the trigger then push the safety the rest of the way forward it can fire. This is true of a lot of safety systems, the key here is to use it like the 2 position safety it is and you will have no problems. Bottom line is when the safety is on it will not fire, when the safety is off it will fire. If you try to use it other than designed or intended that is not really on us. This is a single isolated complaint if there was a way to make it completely idiot proof I would. I posted this here not to hijack the sales thread but to support the sale of what is a fine weapon that everyone else has not had any issues with.
