Re: MAB model D (S.N. 24XXX) feeding problem
The "thumb" safety has been brazed... and one is on order, the toe of the "tumbler", I "shimed", the trigger rod wouldn't push it far enough rearward... I do have a new one of those, but it must have come off a different production run; series 1 vs. series 2 or some thing like that, for the hole that mounts it to the frame pin is in a different location .. by about .040". I think ill have a gun smith or welder build up the toe on the original one, then i'll file it to fit.
My plan is to restore it to a safe and serviceable unit. I just find the inner workings so magnificent, the new polly guns have nothing on this. There is no "art" to the inner workings any more.
You can't prevent the inevitable.. only alter its time span!
