Can anyone provide me instructions on how to replace the barrel selector, button and screw on an old Stevens Model 22/410? Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

Sounds like some work you might want a smith to do...

It's been almost 30 years since I've done one, and I'm too lazy to partially disassemble one of mine - but - IIRC :

Step one is, remove the barrels from the frame

Two - remove the buttstock from the frame.

Three, cock the hammer & pin the mainspring strut to relieve spring tension on the hammer.

Four, remove the mainspring & drive out it's pivot pin to remove the hammer.

The side selector should now be accessable for switching out if a replacement in on hand.

Reassemble in reverse order. ;) (take 2 aspirin, call us in the morning :D )

If the "replacement" selector is actually a new hammer with the selector in it's pivoting nose, simply reinstall the hammer/mainspring, using the new hammer after first removing/discarding the broken side selector parts. (they are irrepairable, believe me when I tell you this)

Re-install the buttstock, and cover the side button hole with a dime (epoxy), or whatever.
