Mosin Nagant ring type safety pull
 
Has anyone tried one of these ring type safety pulls?

Thinking about buying a few if I get good feedback on them.

It may make using the safety easier, but it looks overly large and clunky to me. It also looks like it would snag on stuff pretty easily.

Is Russian rifle.
Is for shooting.
Is not needing safety.

Meh...If it ain't broke, don't fix it...or fix it 'til it is...:D

My MN's are range shooters, never think much about a safety it's just load, send home and squeeze, ice shoulder when done...;)

Have heard stories about taking the safety off and going boom...for various reasons...but have never had the need to use it...

I guess it could have a use (the ring), just not for me...:cool:

The trigger pulls are so heavy i dont think it needs a safety.

What? I engage/disengage my mosin safety with my thumb. I thought that's the way it's supposed to be done...

You mean to tell me there are some men not manly enough to do this while shooting one of the most ultimately manly rifles? Blasphemy.

Side note: no, I'm not kidding. Every mosin I've ever handled I've been able to manipulate the safety with the thumb of my firing hand. I know I CAN'T be the only one. And I don't exactly have gorilla hands either.

You'll knock your teeth out if you use the girly type that needs help w/ the safety. BTW, never used the "Safety"

WHAT? My Mosins have a safety? Safety on a Mosin-Nagant, to me, is not having a round in the chamber. The Russians and Soviets believed that the most important safety on weapons was located between the ears of the bearer of the firearm.

not tried it, i can engage the "safety" on mine ok, its the design of the safety itself that is the problem, it can slip to the fire position with a good bump. however, if you do get one and try it, please let us know how it workks

Mine is a B!^@#, I do good to engage/disengage it at all. Guess I'm a sissy.:p
