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.
Grant me grace, O merciful God, to desire ardently all that is pleasing to Thee, to examine it prudently, to acknowledge it truthfully, and to accomplish it perfectly for the praise and glory of Thy name.

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