Default Interlocks and Disconnectors the same????

Whats the difference in a safety interlock and a disconnector? Does a winchester model 70 have either or both? If so what does it do?

A disconnector interrupts the trigger to sear cycle to avoid a full auto firearm.

A safety interlock should stop movement of something.

Removing a disconnector or disabling it does not make a firearm go full auto. It does just the opposite. It causes the firearm to turn into a single shot making you have to cycle the action each time to get a shot to go off.

The disconnector is what enables a semiauto or full auto to function. Select fire guns have two disconnectors one for semi auto one for full auto. Without one the gun is not functional.

And pump action shotguns without disconnectors---how do they fit into the
whole scheme of things?

depends on the model. the old winchester pump model 1897 doesnt fire till the bolt is forward its got one just not what we think of as one. its closer to a automatic style disconnect. not a semi one. its part of the sear and prevents the hammer falling until the bolt is full forward. its not a seperate piece like in most guns.
