No problem at all...Im sure if you look on the internet market you might find something. Try to stay away from most aftermarket stuff, that is if they even make an SKS safety

i was hunting up in the hills and when i finally had a shot i laid down to take it and my bipod collapsed and it fell at least 20 yards bouncing off rocks and landed in the dirts barrell facing straight up at me...the yugo didnt even have a knick...good thing i didnt take the safety off yet though

now that i think of it, i did take my buddy out shooting and the guy is a giant 6foot6 300 or so pounds and doesnt know his own strength he loved shooting that thing maybe that had something to do with it . he wasnt familiar with a sks . oh well it looks easy to fix. i guess i just drive out that little pin and replace the lever

As far as I am aware, the only way to replace the safety lever is to replace the entire trigger group. HOw the heck did you destroy the lever?

at its thinnest part it broke cleanly off, where it comes out behind the trigger, and i still dont get how i managed to do it...

as far as replacing that part it doesnt look too difficult i will need to drive out the pin , i dont think the lever is under spring pressure so maybe itll be easy .har har

well what do ya know ...it was as easy as it looked! i got the part from copes, looked at it for awhile ,drove the pin out with a punch,replaced it with a thin nail, and then inserted the pin. a lot easier than i was expecting.woo hoo!!
