Re: Hotchkiss Carbine Cutoff/Safety

The piece is made of spring steel, in the shape of a "T", with split stem/shaft - in fact, it is removed and re-installed by pinching the arms together. The shaft must have some sort of flat, but it is retained in the gun by snapping into the ring. Does that help? I am reluctant to dismount mine. I can provide some exterior measurements - such as the width of the gap when sprung in place.

Jim has forgotten more about the Hotchkiss than most people know, and is a real gentleman. He is a Winchester collector and does not read this board.
