    You can with a modified safety lever, one with a notch cut into the rear of it. Highly unlikely on a new weapon. I've only ever heard of it as an aftermarket modification.

    LOL! There are a handful of people on these boards who rely on nitpicking, hair-splitting, and petty semantics in an effort to make a point.

    The people that work in sporting good stores are usually students and have no clue or interests in what the store is selling they are only there for the paycheck. Looking at it from their point of view no gun in the store is loaded with ammo so there is no need to check to see if it is loaded when they know it is not. Gun stores on the other hand know that the people coming in to shop usually have some experience with a gun and know the basic rules of handling a gun.

    A few years ago, I was at a gun show in Raleigh. I was standing at a vendor's table and the person standing next to me picked up a .22 auto, cocked it and "dry fired" it. But there was a live round in the chamber. Fortunately he had it pointed downward at the display table and there were no injuries.

    But it sure got a lot of peoples attention, including me.

    I would be interested to know this as well. I have a total of 9 AK's, including 2, 1960 Polish milled receiver models, and none of them have this feature??? Bill T.

    Okay, I corrected the spelling, but I'm not going to tackle the grammar.
