    Default What about installing a "wing-type" safety?

    Is installing a "wing-type" safety difficult? I have been thinking about installing one as soon as possible so that I don't drop the magazine instead of applying the safety. I know that they aren't expensive, but is installing it difficult?

    Why would anyone want one? What gun are you thinking of installing a wing safety on? What makes you think you need to change the safetys already factory installed on the gun?

    It's in the M1 Carbine section so I'm going with that.

    I never heard of anyone doing that but it's not a bad idea. Never thought of it myself, course I'm often times thinking challenged.

    When I owned a Universal Carbine, it had a "wing" or rotating lever-type safety lever. I was rather fond of that manner of applying/releasing the safety. It does assist in differentiating between the safety and the magazine release, especially in the dark. This is the reason for my question.
