Yes I just won a ATI 300 Blackout Pistol. Have not fired it yet. My Question is . Is the safety meant to rotate when the weapon is NOT cock? I also have a DPMS AP4 and the safety does not rotate when it is not cocked.

Thanks for any info.

It operates like a rifle. No it does not.

Yep gotta be cocked. Welcome and congratulations!! Great bunch of guys here and we dont give anyone a hard time with questions. Anything else just ask away no matter how simple you think it may be. Learn and shoot your new AR and you may find you really like it. My .300BO is very accurate. Its a 16" barrel tho and its my new fav-o-rite hunting rifle for short range. Lightweight and easy to get on target.

Maybe that's why they gave it away, it's broken <G> Sorry couldn't resist.

Congrats on winning the pistol.

Kind of related and I thought the OP might have one. Can't find it anywhere on the net. Isn't there a modified aftermarket safety that actually allows for safe to be engaged without charging (cocking) the weapon? I could have swore I ran across it days ago during one of my searches and as I recall, I took the time to read how it was designed and functioned.

To paraphrase Jeff Cooper and his response to a double action 45. It is an answer in search of a for a problem that does not exist.

He wouldn't approve of the H&K (MR).

No and I wonder what he would think of all the new poodle shooters.

I would hope he would be wise enough to appreciate them for what they are but if not, oh well.

I'm sure he would appreciate the for what they are hence the poodle shooter tag. He loved big bore fighting rifles as shown in his Scout Rifle and Thumper. I don't think he would ever step away from his thoughts of the 5.56 any more than Elmer Keith would agree that a handgun cartridge that started with less than a 4 was adequate to carry on your hip.
