My 12g Field has the standard 3-position OFF/ON/OFF safety slide. A recommended LC Smith gunsmith says he ROUTINELY uses silver solder to modify the safety in a reversible manner (i.e., the solder can be removed) to convert to a more conventional/modern ON/OFF safety. What would be the downside of such a modification on a family heirloom which I have absolutely no intention of selling? I want a shooter which will always return to safety when opened, and on which there is no possible ambiguity -- back is ON, forward is OFF.
