Put the safety to the safe position, lay the rifle down on the right side (side the bolt sticks out) use a dowel, unsharpened pencil or flat punch and give it a tap with a hammer. Hit it gentle and square will pop right out...

I used a brass...tube? Something I had laying in my drawer, and the end of a screwdriver as a hammer. Doesn't take much at all! To put it back in, use a small flat head screwdriver to pry the plunger up, with the gun in the same position as Mike described, and slip the safety lever back in Easy!

allows the stock to be removed without removing the safety----maybe he will chime in here, or do a search...

Does help with taking the stock on and off...which does make it more compact for traveling...but also the safety is a full 180degree throw. Really not had to flick the safety OFF, but putting the safety ON is a pain. Be nice to be able to flick it from on to off and off to on without having the fumble for the lever.

#1. Check to see where the safety actually works. Most will be off safe by about 90degrees of travel.

#2. Will dismount the safety and file the safety a bit flatter (no harm done, you'll be flicking it on and off from sides, not the top). Being thinner helps in step #4. Can color the safety...some cold blues kind of work, but most paints chip.

#3. Drill the safety for a pin. Placed right, will rest against the trigger guard when the safety is pointing 90 degrees and is on-safe. A little file work on the flats that actually run the safety system might be needed.

#4. File a slot in the inside of the stock inletting just deep enough to let the safety pass through when at that 90degree point.

Results:
Don't have to remove the safety to get the stock on and off.
Can more easily sore/transport the gun in a smaller package.
Can actually flick the safety ON or OFF with your trigger finger.

You can see how it's done in several of my videos on YouTube. For example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgR5ddwM ... ature=plcp

These videos cover a number of other topics and you can follow along if you wish...
