    I know it's been a while but, the part finally came in today. My wife has been pissed at me because I was expecting it sooner so my shotgun has been taking up space on my dining room table. Well, I just got finished putting it back together & it works like a charm! I'm sure I would have figured it out eventually, but you helped make it go faster & smoother. Much appreciation!
    Interesting Razz! If you don't mind, where did you get the part?

    The last M12 part I bought was an "action slide lock". It's the little button behind the trigger guard you press to unlock the action.
    Buying one isn't the problem! The problem is, it has to be hand fitted to the gun!
    Not hard, it just means gently stoning the part, then reinstalling it until it works correctly.

    You have to partially disassemble the fire group, then, the screw that holds the part in place is a left hand thread.

    Love them old M12's!

    p s. - Congratulations! Glad I could help!

        Even a blind sow can find an acorn if she roots around long enough. 🙂!

            Hey First Bubba, believe it or not, I got it from eBay. And there were quite a few people selling them to choose from. I sent the seller a message before I ordered it to confirm that it was original. I was told a long time ago that you can find anything on eBay. Just to test that theory, I tried to find a "Geiger Counter" & I actually found 2 of them for sale. Well, thanks again for your help & happy shooting & fixing guns!
