Buehler Low-swing Safety
Posted 09 August 2006 - 06:20 PM
Anyway, it's the first small step I'm going to take in getting pieces together to convert this puppy into a nice .308 scout rifle. If they're more trouble than they're worth, I can return it and buy a side-safety instead (either a Model 70 style or a trigger safety). I just hate the ergonomics of the standard Mauser safety.
I look forward to hearing about your experiences. Thanks!

They are a very popular mod and relatively trouble free. Once you become aquainted with this safety, you may find that there are less expensive models available that will all work the same, but I'd say you're off to a good start.
The middle position is somewhat overrated IMHO. You'll find that the flipping this one down may be moderately faster than a 3 position Winchester style.

Anyway, the Timney Buehler-style safety comes in Monday. I'll probably take a look at how it works, and maybe be able to try it out life fire next weekend.
Thanks again, as usual!

I'm gonna play with this a bit more, but anyone else done this before? Could you draw a simplistic picture of what the parts are, or at least give a good description of what they might mean?
This is the Timney version, by the way.
Edited: Nevermind, I figured it out. Must have been tired. Works fine!
