The safety on a recently purchased model 8 was loose and swiveling on the shaft, not engaging or disengaging. Finding a replacement seemed impossible. So I did a solid fix. I dismantled the receiver leaving only the bolt and safety to visually see the proper position, then etched an alignment line . Drilled and tapped a hole in the line between the post and the safety lever. Installed a steel filler plug and filed the top flush with the surface. Re blued and it works perfectly. Hoping to get another 99 yrs out of it!
