Hammerli international Safety

Post by Pauly D on 3/29/2015, 11:41 am

I am wondering if the safety on a Hammerli international can be reversed?

Thanks

Not really sure. It just says Hammerli International. It was purchased new back in the 60's in Switzerland. My guess is a 208.

As far as I know the 208 didn't have a safety. I had and early 208 that didn't have one. If I recall later in the 80's a safety was required so they could be imported, it was a knob projecting out of the rear of the slide.

Paul,

What do you mean reversed? Right side instead of Left side?  Or up actuation instead of down?

If your Hammerli was purchased in Switzerland in the '60s it most likely is a 207.  It had a left side mounted thumb safety.  It can be removed and a wood filler installed under the grip.  Do
not try to reinstall it on the right side.

OK, The pistol was purchased in Switzerland in the 60's by a left handed shooter. As such the pistol is set up for a left handed shooter. If you are holding the pistol the safety is on the right hand side.
I purchased a set of right hand grips from Roco Systems. Before I take the Dremel to the grips I figured I'd ask about the safety. 
I could try shooting left handed, for the challenge.

Paul.

Don't modify the grips. Just remove the safety from the left hand side.  AND FORGET ABOUT IT.

It would be stupid to try shooting left handed, unless you lost your right arm in the war.

Jerry,

Thanks for the advice.
It appears that the safety is held in by a screw on the left side of the grip. With the screw out should the safety assembly push out?

Paul,

Yes, the safety comes out,  but it cannot be installed on the right side.
