I took the upper off of my new BM C15 97S pistol and put it on my lower from my BM C15 21S and noticed that unless I yank the action back, my new carbon 15 lower won't go into 'safe'. It will only go to the safe position if its cocked. I took the lower off of the upper and it flat won't go into safe unless I cock it. Any thoughts?

Get a bigger safe

My 16" A2 carbine does the exact same thing. I don't think it is a really big deal. If your rifle is not cocked why do you need the safety on???

Behavior by design. NO AR15 or M16 selector can be placed on "safe" unless the hammer is cocked. The hammer's rear end is too far up to allow the selector to go to "safe".

If you go to an auto mechanic and tell him that you can't put the car in gear without pressing the brake, it's annoying but still by design. The AR-15 was designed to be put into safe only when the hammer was cocked. Really no big deal. You should clear your weapon anyhow. If you're storing your gun, you should store it with the hammer down on an empty chamber, safety off.

Thanks for the info. guys. I never noticed that on my other lower. BTW it goes right into the safe next to the other guns on its own.

While it's nice to have a well trained rifle , too much safetime is bad for the little fella.
Take him for a nice walk at the range
