T99 safety

Postby chucksniper » Fri Mar 27, 2009 7:38 pm

Hi all,
I have a problem with my safety. When I push it in, it doesn't want to turn to the right.

Any ideas?

Here we go... LOL

I swapped triggers from another rifle... why I do not know or remember...

The safety knob was hanging up on the trigger sear.

The trigger that came with the rifle.. the sear.. sat lower than the one I stole from another rifle.

I noticed the sear by getting extra nosy.... I pressed the first stage and
held it.... at the same time turned the safety knob.. and wala... it engaed
very easily, boy did I feel like an @$$

Any whooo...LOL

I also filed down the top of the bolt body to lengthen the travel of the safety knob, to make it easier to engage. After it's engaged it's solid. I was concerned that it would disengage accidentally, but it doesn't.

Heck I can disengage it while it's shouldered with my thumb!!

What do you think?

Glad you got it sorted. I have never used the safety on any of my Arisakas on the range as I only load when ready to shoot. I have tested them for function, but that is all.
Regards
Peter.

I think it has to do with how far the firing pin sear is held back by the trigger, if you get some wear it is not held far enough back and the slot in the firing pin does not line up with the pin on the safety shaft and will not turn. When you press the trigger and take up the first stage it pushes the firing pin sear back a little and it lines up and rotates. I am waiting on another trigger for this same reason. I put a small shim on the trigger sear and the safety rotates, that is why this reasoning.

Thanks for that info. Got any photos of your Arisakas to show us?

Regards
Peter.
