I was talking to a friend. He has an old remington 700, one that may have the so called 'faulty safety' the news ranted on for a few days. He said he wanted it replaced and asked me if I could do it. I could make a few dollars on the deal so I wanted to see what this involved. I could only find a 'rifle basix' replacement safety, for models before 2006. And thats about it, except a three position safety, from midway usa, that involves drilling and taking steel off in a couple spots. Other than that I can find nothing on the subject. My googles didnt turn up much. If someone could tell me, would the rifle basix safety do away with the problem or is it the exact same as factory? Id think the three position would, but I dont want to risk messing it up, without a ton of research. Id really think there would be a lot more info on this topic than Im finding, being as it was on the news and caused a stir for a week or so. If theres any other info you guys have Id greatly appreciate it.
