Safety question



Log in to see fewer ads
I recently purchased a 340B (I think). The safety works but it is on the right side of the action. Most pictures show it on the left side. The safety works, but is it supposed to be like this? Thanks

The safety should be a three position safety. To the left is safe, strait up is safe and you can remove bolt to disassemble it. and right, to fire. Looks like yours has a Buehler style safety that was popular on sporters in the 70's. might be a Springfield one adapted to the Mauser as the 98 Mauser would be too big. The B series safetys broke very easily.

I have a ES340 and my safety is the opposite of yours. All the way lerft is fire. Up is safe and bolt can be opened, and far right like in your photo the bolt is locked and safe.
The 'dishing' is opposite too, the convex like in yours, is like that on mine when on the left side and looks more rounded when on the far right.

M14man, You are correct. Guess it's been too long since I shot my Mauser's!
The Buehler safety was made to be like the modern sporting rifles. I've got a new one somewhere in my parts bin. Can't remember if it is for a Mauser or a Springfield.
Finding a smallbore B series safety if the holy grail of B parts. Rifght in there with the 350 rear sights. The Buehler safety does give those looking for a safety, another option.

It sure looks like a buehler . Almost any mauser , Springfield , aftermarket safety can be modified to work .
I have parts for these , but they aren't cheap .

The shaft on the Mauser would be tough to turn down. I posted a modified Springfield safety that came on a DSM 34 I bought.

You don't turn it down . You cut the shaft off and drill thru the flag and replace with the new shaft , weld , mill or file flat and fit for function . I've made many .

Will that Buehler safety fit on my Mauser that's missing the safety.

Not without mods . But since it has a removable shaft it's a little easier .

Bought a beautiful, straight shooting MM410b recently, but without a safety (and a hood). According to some of the entries apparently it breaks easily. I'd of course prefer an original (hens' teeth) one but instead of buying and modifying one, I'd thought I'll try to make an interim one?
The correct hole dimension I'll be able to figure out, but could someone be so kind and measure the "flag" part? Couldn't find the dimensions of this scarce part elsewhere addressed on this forum?
Don't have all that many options down here in Africa...

MS350b

I know a local sporting goods store that has a parts grade MS 350b on the rack. Broken and repaired stock and some mods to the rear sight base (sliding type); however, has a rear sight blade that is un-altered, safety, firing pin, trigger, etc that are likely worth the asking price. I don't remember the exact price - seems like just under $500. PM me if this is something that would help you in your quest.

This might work:

Yes, Beartrax, that is the US90 option I was talking about. Exactly what I need. Need to import as well and I'm not too sure Customs is going to be very tolerant about me importing weapon parts...
