Title: Safety for sporting pellet or air guns

Abstract: A new safety that is incorporated to a sporting pellet or air gun by which the accidental firing of the gun is prevented even when the gun is loaded, making it necessary to remove it in order to fire the gun. This safety includes a square bulky button with cut edges at the top that make it look like a trapezium in its cross-section view; and grooves on the surface to hold and move it manually, and that on its lower face is curved having the correlative shape of the barrel, and also has a side bore where a peg that joins the base of the safety is introduced. A base of the safety, placed under the safety that is a rectangular piece acts as a cam to place the latch when the gun is loaded, from which a second piece also rectangular in shape sticks out. This has a side bore towards the top correlative to the bore in the latch, and this top peg also has a top cut and a spring that consists of a level live plate with an oval central bore, correlative to the peg in the latch so that it can be introduced by means of a flexion movement and that presses the latch keeping it pressed and fixed.
