XAUSA,

I have seen several M/S rifles with a "one off" conversion of the wing safety that allows it's use with a reasonably low scope mounting.

If there was ever a commercial offering of a "low Scope" safety lever conversion for the M/S I'm not aware of it. Probably too small of a market to make it profitable to produce as opposed to the Mauser & Springfield 03 market.

I really do prefer a bolt sleeve mounted safety (or1917 Enfield style) that locks the firing pin like on most military bolt action rifles as opposed to a safety that simply blocks the trigger from moving.

Considering the location of the bolt, it is not all that easy to mount a scope very low, anyway.

With the 1952 & later models (swept back bolt handle) you can mount a scope approximately 1.6" above the bore centerline (centerline of bore to centerline of scope) w/o modifications to the bolt handle as long as the ocular end of the scope isn't larger than 1.45" & you can gain a bit more clearance by thinning the bolt handle.

Earlier models w/ the straight bolt handle will likely require higher scope mounting or thinning the bolt handle & most prewar models will only have the wing safety so will need a very high mounted scope for clearance of the safety.

I don't consider 1.6" a high mounted scope as most ballistic programs use 1.5" as the default for line of sight & a lot of large objective scopes require 1.6" or higher mounting for barrel clearance but that said, I always try to mount my scopes as low as possible.
