    I got a Remington 742 .30-06 for my BIL. I did not realize until we went to the range, it has a left handed safety. BIL is right handed so I want to switch it out for him.

    My limited research indicates some of the 80's Remmys had reversible safeties. Does anyone know if the 742 is ini that era? If so, a short tutorial would be uber cool.

    If not, I am sure there are some lefties that might like to swap.
