Just think of the Magazine Release button as a 'kind-of safety'. Press it, and the rifle becomes as safe as a bolt action rifle. Why is the guy's finger on the trigger anyway? Everyone knows you should have a loaded weapon and an itchy trigger finger when you read books.

You guys have got it all wrong. In that picture the safety is still on. To take the safety off, you push on it and give it 1/2 a turn (either direction works). It will pop right out of the receiver into your hand. The weapon is then ready to fire. (Most soldiers carry the safety in their LH hip pockets for easy retrieval with their right hand when they need to make the rifle safe again.) *geesh* I expected more from you guys.. [:D]

That "safety" is useless if theres a round chambered.
