I know this has been covered here before. Tried the search function but didn't come up with anything. Now that I'm using my 2097 for skeet I would like to, after all, disable the auto safety function on this gun and convert it over to a manual safety.
So, that's the question: For those of you who have done it what steps need to be taken in order to convert from auto to manual safety on the 2097.? ..

OK, here we go again. It is not a bad job at all. First take your stock off. You will see a rod shaped like an L that goes from the top lever stem back to the safty. When you push the top lever to the right it pushes the safety back. Before you remove the rod find you a piece of round stock the same size as the rod. A drill bit works good. If you don't ever plan on putting the rod back in you can use it. Cut the end off the drill or the rod with a dremel cut off wheel or on your grinder. You want it as long as the width of the rear tang that holds the safety. Just push down on the safety with your thumb and with a pair of pliers pull the rod to the left and back to remove it and put the short pin you made back into the hole that the rod came out off and your done. Let me know how it goes !!

Just finished up converting from auto to manual safety on my 2097. Thanks for providing the info, Dave. The job was simple and almost too EASY. !. .
Out on the skeet field I had gotten get used to resetting the auto safety after each reloading cycle as a matter of course but there were times too when I 'forgot' to do it. The end result, after making a quick thumb move to get the safety OFF, was having to reaquire the target and hopefully break it before it disappeared behind the high/low house .!. Luckily, I never did blast a house. Probably would have never heard the end of THAT one .. ! ..
Thanks, Dave.
