I was deep cleaning my 1890 Model 73 and dropped the lever on my garage floor and the cam went flying. Searched for 2 hours and can not find it. Anybody out there have one? Tried making one but that was time wasted.

Steve the pin was broke and there was only a little bit of it protruding into the lever maybe .025 and when it was in the gun the receiver wall kept it from coming out.  After making about 6 of them I got one that works well. I’ll LocTite it in. Thanks for the replies guys.

Earl,

The pin should be a pinch fit if its made right. How I made them is by turning the pin first out a of a larger diameter rod then cut the rod off the thickness needed for the cam now its just a matter of cutting and filing the cam to shape.
