Browning/Winchester Safety Question

Can anyone describe the process for changing the safety on these guns from right hand to left hand operation? I can get the trigger assymbly out, but am unsure after that. Thanks

    YOU WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO HAVE A NEW SAFTY MADE BY A GUNSMITH. WILLIAMS USED TO MAKE LEFTY SAFTIES FOR MANY DIFFERENT FIREARMS BUT STOPPED ABOUT 15 YEARS AGO (PROBABLY FOR LIABILITY REASONS). GUN PARTS MAY HAVE SOME OLD STOCK, I JUST GOT A R.H. SAFTY FOR A B-80 BROWNING AND I NOTICE THEY HAVE L.H. SAFTIES LISTED FOR THE A-5.

    Actually the owners manuals on both guns say that the safeties are "easilly convertable to left hand use by a competent gunsmith." In looking at it, I think I can do it myself, but am hoping someone can provide some guidance before I dig in.

    Anyone??

    You may want to say exactly which Browning/Winchester gun you're trying to convert,

    WITHOUT KNOWING WHICH MODEL WE ARE TALKING ABVOUT IT HARD TO SAY, BUT THE 'GUNSMITH' IN THE OWNERS MANUAL USUALY MEANS INSTALLING A DIFFERENT SAFTY BUTTON.

    Hmmm. I guess identifying the model would be helpful, wouldn't it. Sorry

    The guns are the Winchester Super X2 and a Browning Gold Fusion. They are made by the same company and use the same trigger.

    Anyone know how to do the conversion??
