    If you are referring to the lock in a Smith & Wesson, there's a video on youtube that shows you how.

    It's your gun, so can't see there being a law against doing it, but I could see an opportunistic lawyer using the knowledge that you did against you if you ever shot someone with it.

    I "removed" my Hillary hole by trading for an earlier model. :D

    You can remove it and just say you bought it used that way.

    They are quite an eyesore to otherwise gorgeous S&W revolving pistols.

    I think you would have less to worry about the lock being missing in a traditional shooting than you would if someone unauthorized, especially if a minor, got ahold of it and hurt themselves or others. Then the DA & plaintifs attorneys would be all over you for removing something that "might" have "prevented" something.

    I have one with a lock. I ignore it.

    It's perfectly legal in most jurisdictions, be sure before you modify...

    I have done it to three different revolvers, its easy and eases my mind. I just left the lock in, even thoughit is disabled. I do it to all my newer Smiths.

    Take out this safety feature and the DEA will be at your doorstep in the morning! This goes right along with handloads used in home defense. "To to jail-straight to jail" do not pass go. Oh, ya? Says who? Well, for starters my uncle's cousin's nephew's wife works for a LAWYER and yada-yada---.
    The handload story has been going around since the start of the "net".Worse case is you'll lower the resale value of your weapon if you remove it. Got a 686-6 with the lock and has not caused any problems.

    It's a "storage" feature, not a "safety" feature.

    Just keep the parts & if you sell the gun they can go along with it.
