Re: Reassembling Smith Ideal Grade
I tried pushing the top lever over. It is a real effort to do so and a lot of pressure. I wasn't so sure it was a good idea not knowing what I might bend or break. I made up a jig similar to what Drew suggested and it works fine except I didn't put the safety latch where it should be and have to disassemble it once more.
The gun is an Ideal Long Range with ejectors. I would have thought a letter stamp under the trigger guard would be common and someone on the board would know what it represents.
