    Yes you are correct. That is why I put that safety on the one I built. It would be more like a post war Sniper from the Yugo conflicts. But I go with function more than staying Historically Correct unless it truly is an original model rifle.

    You need to get a Sniper Style Safety from Gun Parts Corp. I just built a sniper for someone out of a 24/47 Yugo and installed the sniper safety on it for him. Sorry I can't post pictures.

    Pedersolli does offer the Kentucky or even Pennsylvania rifles in .32 cal. They cost a little more than the Traditions Kits. But they are well worth it.
