Rem. Mod 14 Question

Post by jthgunnut » Sat Jan 07, 2012 9:18 pm

:?: I'm in the process of cleaning up and working on my Model 14. I immediatly noticed that my disassembly book doesn't show the thumbnail bolt lock safety that my Model 14 has. In checking Gunbroker.com I could only find 1 other 14 with the same bolt safety. The seller referred to the rifle as a 14-A. What is the significance of the bolt safety model??

I have read elseware that this was a feature on early Model 14's that was removed as it was found to be somewhat difficult to manipulate, especially with gloves on. I dont think it effects the value of the rifle from what I have seen to date. Not a big deal in my book. But I am fairly new to collecting these guns so someone else may have more info.
