what year did savage move the safety from the lever to the tang
After 1960 all production models except for the E and the 1895 Commemorative had tang safeties.
Some the early tang safety models also had the lever catch (2 safety transition model)
I am not sure if the early tang safeties were savage poto type or an aftermarket add on. I have seen a couple dozen of the savages fitted with a tang safety that operated the lever safety.
