    I always use the safety on my RR when required. Usually I am just plinking or at the range so I just shoot the cylinder, reload and shoot another cylinder. Its appearance is irrelevant to me.

    There is a blank sold that removes it and fills the gap created.. I'm not planning on changing mine. I think it's cool to be able to dry fire it on the safety bar.

    I carry my RR in the woods at times. Lately, I've carried it for snakes with .22 mag shot loads. I want it READY and know I won't remember that stupid safety when I need the thing. So, I just load 5 and drop the hammer on an empty chamber like it's supposed to be done.

    You don't happen to have a link for that do you? I might be interested in something like that. I was thinking about getting another RR (sailor grips) and would like to add that mod.

    Here's an Ebay seller with one:

    Made of polymer...probably 3D printed. It's the only one I've found. YouTube videos are plentiful on detail stripping.

    Well, I broke down and put a deposit on a RR .22 LR today. I wanted something that I could leave at the lake house that would be handy for the occasional venomous visitor. LBS only had 6.5" barrel lengths on display, but had some of the 4.75" barrel models in the back. I took the shorter one because I thought it had better balance. We will see how it shoots.

    Congrats!

    I do not have 4" but I bet they are snap to point. You'll be fine unless you venomous friends are more than 10yrds away... and if they are a visabel problem at 10 or more yards away then you have more of an issue than a .22 can solve.

    You didn't want the one with the 16" barrel?? I saw those for sale and wondered who would buy those. Purely a collector's item.

    Yep the 16" RR is a totally useless oddball novelty handgun. And with fiber optic sights... well that's nuts too.

    I like mine a lot.

    Now that's a serious plus for the safety. Hadn't thought of that.
