Well, the handle obviously slides into a dovetail. Tighten the dovetail, tap the handle into it, let a good welder TIG a spot on the end, then polish the weld smooth with the surface. I will say that I have used the Brownells lo-temp and hi-temp silver bearing solders on a number of repairs. Properly applied never had anything come loose like sights and scope mounts. Supposed to have a shear strength of something like 25,000 lbs or so, not in shop to double check numbers. The trick to soldering, from silver brazing on down, is to have the surfaces CLEAN and to not overheat the metal. Takes experience. GW
