I am trying to reassemble what I believe to be a 1949 Field Grade side by side. I just want to make sure that I am doing this properly. I have made the jig to move the shaft of the top lever into place and tested to make sure that works. My concern is getting the safety back into place correctly. It seems as though the pin in the safety link just barely fits into safety. I realize I will gain a bit more when the Top Lever shaft is in place but want to make sure I am not missing something. In the picture the hammers are cocked, the safety is engaged and the Top Lever is closed.
Any help would be appreciated.
