Safety Mechanism

The safety on my shotgun caused it not to fire several times on the range. According to one forum this is common with the safety feature on Uplander. Nothing a 12" straightblade screwdriver, philips screwdriver and punch cannot slow.

I am not the best gunsmith so it took me an hour to complete this project. Remove the butt plate and unscrew the rear stock, which exposes the saftey mechanism. You punch out the pin; leaving the saftey switch for cosmetic reasons, but removes the lock over the trigger.

Cowboy Action Shooting requires the shotgun to be breached, unloaded and pointed down range at all times, so there is no need for a safety. It also slow down your match time each time you have to undo the safety.
