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.
