    Looking for safety for 1895 lever gun

    This is the safety with the split round tail. The safety on my gun has one of the two split tails broken off. I'm guessing welding would not work due to loss of heat treatment. Short of finding a good replacement, has anyone fixed this issue by other means?

    Replace the safety with a saddle ring.

    I really want to keep it original, but I'm curious how this is done...

    "Good enough" isn't. I'm pleased with MOA rifles but prefer candle-snuffers and especially match-lighters. One-holers don't belong only among outhouses. ~ Ken Howell
