Seen at the Gunsmithing Shop: Use the Safety, But Don’t Rely On It!

Safety tip from The Firearm Blog:

I noticed that the owner had installed an aftermarket AR-15 style stock using a bolt from a hardware store. A bolt that was just a bit too long. A bolt that hit the “Y” shaped safety connector and pushed it forward, snapping off the metal tail on the trigger as the stock was tightened down. I’ll bet most of you didn’t know that installing a tactical stock improperly could break the safety. And that’s why we follow the multiple, redundant, carefully thought out rules of firearms safety.

Safeties can break, so make sure all your gun handling is safe.
