3 position safety

308 1
What exactly does the 3 position safety do on the 10/22? I know that when the hammer is not cocked the safetly will only travel half-way from fire to safe. I know that in the half-way position it's easier to remove the barrelled action from the stock, but does it serve any other purpose?

Thanks,

Robert

THREE Position SAFETY

Robbob,

The 10/22 has a TWO position SAFETY: "ON" and "OFF"

The 'half-way' position for disassembly is not a true position.

A THREE position SAFETY has: "BOLT LOCKED", "ON", and "OFF".

Rifles with a THREE position SAFETY are: 98 Mauser, 1903 Sprg., 1903A3 Sprg., Model 70, and the Ruger Models 77 MKII and 77/22.
