Wear safety glasses! the spring is quite strong.
It's a bit of a struggle to get it all back in as well.

ZED had alot to do with me attempting that in the first place. I knew it had something to do with the hole in the button,and when I pushed the punch in I felt the plunger keep moving after the button stopped.

Ah ha! That's how it releases. Mine must be seized or gummed up.

It has one of those Jeezus springs inside. That is where one removes a pin or screw and.. Jeezus!......

Tech tip:- Don't mess with Jeezus springs and small parts in a room fitted with wall to wall shag pile carpet!

I took a punch the same diameter as the hole in the button and pushed in until the plunger disengaged itself from the button and then I turned the button up and out with the punch still inside the button. I put a small shop rag over the bayonet to keep the plunger and spring from flying across the kitchen like the first attempt.

I figured out how to do the button swap. Pretty simple swap once you figure it out,and having the plunger and spring shoot across the kitchen
My cat was on both items quicker than you could blink.

I have a blade bayonet with no markings on the button that I'd have no issues with doing a swap out on. How do you remove the button please. I've been wondering how to do this anyways.

It's easy enough to swap the release button; but you may have a problem finding one with the 41 or 42 stamp. Although no mark would probably be better than the Savage "S".

"does having a release button from a Savage greatly affect the collectable value of it?"

to a collector - yes , there is no getting around that if true and it probably would affect value in cash as well to those that need the perfect ones , in my mind not so much as its a righteous example of a singer made mkI and fine for my accumulation and a lot of others , i guess i would want to be certain before i lept to a conclusion , is the S in a square or something ?

Are you sure it wasn't a German in a sheep's overcoat?


Maybe, if Hoadie was doing the testing.
