Re: 8/81 Safety Modifications

Hey 81police,

Thanks for the postings. Some real creativity on these rifles. I think I sent you pictures of my 81-D that had a safety modification. Please feel free to post it. It looks like the safety on the Browning A-5 shotgun.

You have a good memory. I bought that rifle. It is the only one I have seen with the "B" following the serial number. I believe this picture is the same rifle. If he will PM me I can confirm the serial number.
