Basically it's a piece of round stock affixed to a flat bar right?

So you need two pieces of metal and a lot of time with files.

I'd drill the flat bar first to take the round stock.

Then I'd work on them separately until they're unitized by welding.

Flat bar has to be cut down leaving the thumb-release and slide stop. A milling machine would be awesome to speed things up.

I'd harden them and then temper followed by polishing & bluing.

I made a loading gate for a replica SAA once. Some machine work but mostly hand work with a file.
