Thanks for all the information, I'm still having problems getting the block lowered enough so the slide will come out. I noticed that numerich sells the takedown lever, I think I'll order it and see if I can get it to work that way.
I thoroughly disapprove of duels. I consider them unwise and I know they are dangerous. Also, sinful. If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand and lead him to a quiet retired spot and kill him.
