    Safety Tang

    Does anyone know what year Remington changed the "flat" safety tang to the "round" safety tang? I'm thinking mid 70s but not sure. I have a 700 made in 1963 and it has the flat tang safety. I have a 700 made in 1989 and it had the round.

    Don’t know if it’s a add on or original. My 721 made in 1956 is flat.

    Can you open the bolt with the safety on? If so, someone has changed it. The old flat type locked the bolt closed when the safety was on.

    The bolt will not open with the safety on.

    Pretty sure the barn door safety and short shroud were both done away with in 1968, thanks Australia! 😂
