I was the investigator. The inspection and analysis was performed, in all cases, with LE/Insurance/Manufacturer's reps present. AFAIK, all parties agreed with my conclusions in these three cases.

In the one with the stock safety, yes, it was an issue. In one of the other ones, I concluded that the stock safety still would have come off, in the other one, no.

I won't list the makes and models. However, J.D.'s assumption as to the style is accurate.
Good Shooting, MarkCO
