According to another post on this gun in this section, it's a take-down button for the fore end stock.
The Legacy break actions have a safety too and I've also heard that the law these days says they have to have them.
Don't know how Henry gets around it (CVA, too), but maybe its the difference between using a hammer block or transfer bar, compared to rebounding hammers?
A manual safety would make sense when you look at it that way (although, it is a break action gun. One could just carry it with the action opened, so.....???).
I would like to take a closer look at this gun.
"Made in China" doesn't bother me as much as it used to. So much stuff is made overseas these days, you're likely using it whether you know it or not.
If you do your homework and pay attention to QC, there's no reason why a copy should be any worse than an original (maybe even improved, as the Japanese have shown us for about 50 years now).
I wonder if Stevens would make one for me with a barrel between 30 and 36 inches. That would be nicer than a 26.
