I was a Gunblogger once

One of these things is not like the others…

A grumpy old Cincinnatus who feeds goats, dogs, cats, ducks, peafowl, a horse, and sundry avians, especially in the winter. From time to time you will see guns. Until such time as the Progressives repeal the 2nd Amendment, everything you see is legal, Federal, State, Local, where I live. Your progressive paradise may have different rules. Don't project them onto me. Federalism still exists, even if it is but a shadow of what the Framers intended.

  1. What’s the big, honking lever on the right side of the receiver of the one with the wooden stock at the bottom of the picture?

  2. The one on top has the same lever. That is the safety lever for the AK-series rifles. The reason it is so big is that it also functions as a dust cover when the weapon is on “safe.” The large size also helps with helping the soldier find and release the safety when it’s dark, slimy with rain and mud, icy, etc.
