Last updated on August 6th, 2019

While the HP22A & HP25 is one of the best rock-bottom priced .22lr pistols out there, its safety features are awful. Though I’ll admit that isn’t too surprising for a pistol designed in California. However, the excessive safety features can pretty much make this firearm unsafe to handle. At least in the opinion of gun-enthusiasts like me. Thankfully, it’s a pretty easy problem to solve. With a Phoenix Arms HP22A/HP25A upgraded safety (Ebay) you can quickly and easily make your firearm work like the majority of firearms out there. Plus, it will also work on other weapons in the family like the Phoenix Arms HP22, HP22A, HP25, HP25A, and possibly more. If you want to see what the part does and how to install it, keep reading.
