Philip526150: need make and model, don't rec. bl-22.
Is it a Browning BL-21. If so Stew lists an owners manual that may be of help.
no wonder i feel tired i see i joined in 1900 ha! thanks all, yes it is a browning bl-22 the cover plate pin is a blind pin i guess i will have to drill it out. i was just trying to see if anybody else had done this before. Thanks to all!! Phil
