The author is stating in his article that there is a safety issue with the Winchester Model 70 trigger since it does not block the trigger's movement. He stated that if the trigger is pulled with the safety on and for some reason there is an obstruction or other factor which prevents the trigger from returning to its forward position, releasing the safety will discharge the rifle.
I was a little concerned, since this is the first time I have read about the trigger/safety issue and knowing that Model 70s are so popular. Anyone ever experience this problem before with Winchester type triggers ?
