Does help with taking the stock on and off...which does make it more compact for traveling...but also the safety is a full 180degree throw. Really not had to flick the safety OFF, but putting the safety ON is a pain. Be nice to be able to flick it from on to off and off to on without having the fumble for the lever.
#1. Check to see where the safety actually works. Most will be off safe by about 90degrees of travel.
#2. Will dismount the safety and file the safety a bit flatter (no harm done, you'll be flicking it on and off from sides, not the top). Being thinner helps in step #4. Can color the safety...some cold blues kind of work, but most paints chip.
#3. Drill the safety for a pin. Placed right, will rest against the trigger guard when the safety is pointing 90 degrees and is on-safe. A little file work on the flats that actually run the safety system might be needed.
#4. File a slot in the inside of the stock inletting just deep enough to let the safety pass through when at that 90degree point.
Don't have to remove the safety to get the stock on and off.
Can more easily sore/transport the gun in a smaller package.
Can actually flick the safety ON or OFF with your trigger finger.
