How To: Replacing A Rossi 92 Bolt Top Safety
« on: May 15, 2009, 05:50:50 pm »
I had decided to get rid of the bolt top lawyer safety on my Rossi .357 - wings and all - so heres how I did it. YMMV.

In my scrounge box, I ran across a couple of Remington 1100 issue crossbolt safety buttons, that I had kept after converting some fellas guns to Giant Head or left-hand safeties.



Sooooo, I chucked the end of one into my hand drill.  I suppose a proper-sized screw could be used instead.



Then, I started up the drill, and held the safety against a file for awhile



Now that it's turned down, I'll see if it fits a lawyer hole



I then filed a notch for the retaining pin





And cut off the part that won't stuff into the lawyer hole



Almost "off"





HOUSTON - WE HAVE SEPARATION ! !



File down the teat, off the cut & polish it smooth



NOW it fits in the lawyer hole, much better !   





Done, except for bluing - IF wanted.

There's a market for 'em. Make a few and you'll sell 'em.

Pretty neat, you did a good job.  It looks as good as the plug I bought for mine.
