Re: Safety doesn't work on right Lock

Try tightening the top tang screw to trigger plate housing one full turn (it has to be one full turn as this screw has a slope slide to it to match the taper of the tang) |
Your sentence here "My first inclination is to bend the sear so that the trigger doesn't contact it immediately". Sounds to me reading this that the top tang screw is too tight and should be backed off one turn.
On this year gun, the safety should have the ladder type latch that has a bar that goes across both trigger plates and rests on them until the safety is moved releasing it.
Since the sear is below the trigger plates, and the safety bar is holding it in place, pulling on the trigger should not effect anything, but it should not have a lot of play in that trigger.
I am not sure at this time period if your gun is using the piano wire type spring or the flat type that is held in by a small screw in the trigger plate housing. If it is the later, is the right arm of the spring in the hole of the trigger plate? The piano wire spring could also not be in place and cause this movement.
Really hard to tell without having gun in hand, but a few things to try.
