    Agreed, max the width to prevent rocking. Likely I will make a new lever or should I say, pass the fun off to a retired friend who has a machine shop and is always looking for ways to fill his days! Thanks for your comments.

    OK, so that's pretty much what my first impression was. There's a screw hole in the frame above the lever and a notch in the upper lever frame to accommodate it. If the arm of the extractor was pivoting on that screw then it would rise into place...

    Nice! Thanks for posting these images. The first one is very close to design of my rifle but not exact. I'm sure there were variations within the model. I'll study this a bit and see what my next move is. I wasn't expecting the L Shape. I'll...

    Thanks for all the responses and good suggestions. I have a book on single shot rifles with diagrams but for the life of me can't find it. I'm not sure if it's Dehass's book but finding it would be a big step. Wayne R. Scott: I appreciate you're...

    I recently came to own an old Davenport Brownie 22 rifle that has some issues. I can't seem to stop myself from buying broken old 22's. This one has issues I would guess are common; broken lever and missing the extractor. By design, it seems to me...
