My Springfield 84 .22 had a cocking knob that was practically a miniature version of the one on a Mosin. And Moonzy won't like this, but the Jennings Junior had a cocking knob.

Crossbolt and thumb safeties are just as effective as a safety and don't require dismounting the rifle from the shoulder or releasing the trigger hand in order to disengage the safety. It's just a matter of practicality.
And I'm betting they're less expensive to manufacture as well. Gotta keep costs down -and profits up!
