there is a couple of very good videos on you tube covering it. I like the one of the southerner who is now in Mass. or something like that.Google is your friend for dissasembly instructions.
I am no gunsmith by any means but have been thinking seriously about deactivating this part of the safety myself.I bought one of those with a 24" barrel recently. Had some mods done on it by one of the moderators on here who's also a gun smith. That alleviated the lever/safety issue...that particular safety is deactivated. I considered it superfluous on a lever action. I'm waiting to buy a machine now that will allow me to mod the stock so as to allow a long range sight on it...but I'll tell you, when I get it done it'll be my favorite firearm, even if it's not my semi lol...just looks and feels to good in my hands .
I've gotta say, I much prefer it that way. My Henry .22 and Henry .44 have no safety as such and I really like that. I wasn't familiar with lever action mods (semis are much more my speed), so I got in touch with JLA on this board. Pretty knowledgeable guy.I am no gunsmith by any means but have been thinking seriously about deactivating this part of the safety myself.
