    How difficult is it to disconnect the Ruger Red Label Automatic Safety? I know the factory will do it for you if you ship the gun in and most gunsmiths do it for a small fee. Anyone have instructions for doing this disconnect? If the answer is "don't even try it" that is helpful, too. Thanks, Ed

    Ruger will do the work if you return the gun to them. The last time I checked a couple of years ago the cost was $40 plus shipping. The procedure isn't all that difficult to do yourself if at all mechanically inclined (I did two of my own). Remove the stock, on the left side of the receiver near the top is a lever that applies the safety when the shotgun is opened. There is a hole in the lever, I put a paper clip through the hole to capture the spring (watch for the spring seat as it will pop out) and removed the lever. You will need to grind off some of the material until the lever no longer applies the safety (this is also how Ruger states they do it, and you will need to buy another lever should you decide you want the auto safety to work in the future). Project completed, reassemble gun and go have fun.

    Good luck,

    Kerry

    I did mine with a Dremel tool without removing the part.

    That will make it easier to get to the other site.

    You can cut it off with a dremel as suggested or send it to browning if you cut it and accidently or on purpose shoot some one you will be left with nothing! Send it to Ruger.

    As an old gunsmith for numerous companies, the idea of altering or removing a factory safety scares me. I will not remove or alter a safety, even on my own guns. It is the Civil Liability factor.

    Have the factory do it.

    It's not difficult to do if you're mechanically inclined. I've done three of 'em myself. Take the stock off so you can get at the innards and it'll be self evident what needs to be done, just grind off the end of the part with a small dremel grinder......you'll want to remove the left side hammer spring and strut to get it out of the way for the operation.
