Pumps with tang-mounted safety (other than BPS and Mossy 500/590)

Question is in the title.

Are there any pumps out there, other than the Browning BPS and the Mossberg 500/590, that feature tang-mounted safeties?

Already a Mossberg fan!

Brent, I already own a Mossy 500. I'm sold on the tang-mounted safety and "out of the way" shell lifter.

Just seeing what else is out there.

Not in current production, but the JMB designed Stevens 520 had a tang mounted safety.

Stevens 520-30, that is. The earlier 520s had either suicide safeties (the earliest models) or crossbolt safeties behind the trigger guard.

Picky, picky, I know...
