    Heard a rumor that Winchester (ok, USRA) has deleted the icky cross-bolt safety on the Model 94. It's being replaced by a less-intrusive sliding tang safety, ala' the repro Model 95's. Anybody else hear the same?

    Yes, it's true. From the Winchester Web site (http://www.winchester-guns.com/prodinfo/catalog/category.asp?cat=003C):

    They're replacing one unnecessary safety with another unnecessary safety. Let's all jump for joy.:D

    At least the tang safety won't let you pull the trigger when it's on safe, which the crossbolt would do. It probably won't allow the mounting of a tang peep sight, though, which I really like.

    A half-step in the right direction, but still not enough to get me to buy one.

    Best,
    Joe
