but so is making the safety usable on a Smith 2214. The safety on the Phoenix HP22 is nearly as bad a deal. It's pot metal, so there's no just "adding on" a lever, extending rearward, to make it fall naturally under the ball of the thumb, while you have a proper firing grip on the gun. So the HP's safety has to be made from scratch, out of steel, and after careful fitting, it has to have its sear contact area case hardened, using the Torch and the Kasenite powder.
