changing safety from left to right on Winchester Super x2

Postby michiganduckhunter » Sat Jun 18, 2005 4:37 am

I bought the Winchester and didn't realize it was set up for a left handed safety until I got home. There are not instructions for changing it in the manual. Can I do it myself? Can anyone talk me through it? Nothing against the local gun smith, but I just spent $750 on it and I haven't even shot it yet.
Thanks

Are you certain it is left handed safety? The reason I say this is because the safety does not push flush with the trigger guard like most other guns do. Sorry that I can not be of help as I did not know there even was possibly a left handed safety even available for right side ejecting gun. Being you have not shot it yet, maybe the dealer will swap it for a right handled one if that is indeed the case that you have a left handed safety.

It is/was set up as a left handed safety. Red showing to the right when held normal for a right handed person. I followed the directions for cleaning the trigger assembly and then just "fiddled" wth it. Once I got into it, it was pretty obvious what needed to be switched around. The safety seems to work fine now.

Yeah, I showed him everything he knows :toofunny:

just kiddn. :salude:

Admin2,
Yes, alot of shotguns now offer that feature for the more ambidexterous saftey, it being capable of being switched..

However, that will never be as good as the thumb/tang safety! :hammering:


Have fun w/ yer new toy :thumbsup:
