    I don't think he knows you were joking, cause we haven't heard from him. I think he is on his way to the hardware store!

    I think it is called a cutting torch.:eek:
    I will get that pin out of there even if I have to cut it out. ;)
    I will just tig the frame back together again.

    I went ahead and saved you some time by getting the pin out. I center punched it then drilled it out. The bit wasn't exactly center or straight so the hole in frame is a little bigger on the left side. Not a big deal for someone with your skill. I have faith you can make a new safety with bigger pivot, more strength that way. Right?

    Something tells me this is going to be a bigger job then I was thinking.
    Lets see Hmmmmm
    One hole bigger then the other and 1/4 inch of Paint, a amp. safety that will not fit.
    Yea this is going to be a fun job,:rolleyes:
    I can't wait till I see the 10s and what is wrong with them.
    A Job like when a customer neglects saying "Oh yea it fires when you close the bolt without pulling the trigger."

    Once had a customer drop off a previously owned 870 he'd just purchased with the complaint "it doesn't click". And that's exactly what our part-timer wrote on the repair tag - doesn't click. The shotgun had been fitted with a release trigger: pull the trigger - nothing (no click), release the trigger - click (bang, if there's a round in the chamber). :)
