Default Type 3 checkered push safety???

It is a very well used, push safety, from a early, original inland. I never noticed, but its a type 3 slot for the plunger. All the books say no. I see a small indent on the right edge of the slot, like it could have been re-machined, and no finish in the slot. Is it possible the updated the type 1/2 slot on surplus parts? This is certainly not a repop.

Reported as Spam at around 0908.

I guess mods are thin today.

Your safety is much like Bigfoot, I've never seen such a beast. If it is a fake of one kind or another, someone went to a fair amount of trouble.

To be a little more serious with you, it looks like some rare hybrid of sorts. I can see someone doing this when didn't know or had forgot about the design change. The person didn't know what to do with it so they just put it in the finished pile...maybe of course. I also believe Winchester did that kind of checkering if I remember right.

Isn't it said that Win and Inland did a little different chamfer profile on the bevel. Don't know if it's actual or just reported.

Ya, inland had the larger chamfer on edge. I measured everything, and it's the same as my other type 1's.
