DS410,

It is great to have this thread revived with yet another surviving specimen (in fine condition, I might add!). Thank you for the photographs, particularly the close-up of the serial.

Regarding the safety lever, I suggest carefully removing the left grip and the plate that covers the trigger bar. Look at the inside of the frontstrap (higher up) and you should be able to get a pretty clear view (though cramped) of the area through which the shaft of the safety lever passes. Hopefully you will be able to figure out what is responsible for creating the tension on the flats milled into the safety's axle when the safety is in place.

It seems that there should be a leg of a spring that rides in those slots and serves both to keep the safety in place (axially) and also simultaneously to create resistance to the safety's rotation between the safe and fire positions.
