Mine was vintage 1976 and it didn't have the safety.

The 336C in 30-30 was, in fact, my first gun. I got it owing to my appreciation for the Winchester style lever action that was the main saddle gun duing the era of the wild west.

I much prefer my Bushmaster Varminter but I guess you always hold a place for your first!:lol:

1983 was when they first started putting the cross bolt safety on them.

FWIW if you really hate the cross bolt safety there is a company that makes a dummy plug for the hole when you remove it.
