I didn't want to cut anything, so I bent the actuator back a bit and got the MG to drop into place. The actuator works as it should, pulling on the handle trips the hammer. If I ever need to return the Lafette back to OEM condition, it can be bent straight again. My elevation adjusted doesn't seem to be working correctly. When you push on the brass tab it moves in it's circular rotation, but after it gets to the middle of it's arc the bed stops going up or down. Swing thru the arc and then returning back to the mid point causes the bed to once again move. I hope I have explained this well enough for you all to understand and possibly tell me whats wrong. Thanks.
