    Swung through to see if victory had been declared. Blew up pictures this time and really looks like rifle had been on the trail in an open buggy, kind of looks like our desert powder dust turned to a solid in there. Know anyone with an Ultrasonic cleaner?

    I'm sure you know this but just a reminder.....the bolt must be cocked for the safety to go on. Sometimes if the trigger has been "adjusted" or it is worn the striker moves forward blocking the safety. If the safety moves at all, even a little, when the bolt is in the rifle and cocked it is blocked, not stuck.

    I got my dad's Mod. 70 when he passed away. It had a problem somewhat like yours. Finely got it apart and found the roll pin sheared inside of the bolt. Both ends were still in the shroud but the inside sheared piece was floating around inside and would jam the safety in the fireing position. Dad had left it loaded that way for god knows how long! Try tapping the roll pin out and see if you can figure out what is going on inside of the safety.

    The range was so busy, I didn't get a chance to take it out of the 4wd (I'm the rifle Captain, I was running the range by myself today).

    I'm just keeping a eye on this post , hopping to see the issue with your safety worked out .
    I have a m 70 that the safety is getting extremely hard to set back on safety from the fired position . I seam to only remember the problem when I take it out of the gun cabinet , I better get on it before it gets any worse .

    Lately, life has been geting in the way of fixing rifle safety issues unfortunately.

    We battled it again at the range yesterday without success.
