Can jiggle my 870 trigger off "safe"


I found that if I jiggle the trigger of my 870 wingmaster side to side, it will go off "safe."

At bit of background. This is a gun I've owned since the 70's, but haven't used it much in the past 10 or so years. When cleaning it I found this condition.
Years ago, I replaced the safety to left-hand and it worked fine.

I figured the safety spring may have weakened, so last week I bought and replaced the safety ball and spring, but it still jiggles off even with the new parts.

Anyone familiar with this problem - right handed or left handed? Could it be more of a trigger problem?
