    How to install selector lever/cutoff

    It's been a long time since I took a Kragicon down completely. Today, I did just that. Now, I'm having a hard time getting the magazine cut-off back in the rifle. I know it's just a matter of pressing down that plunger and pushing it in. But, there has to be a trick to it because I simply can't hold the plunger in far enough and put pressure on the lever at the same time. Any help?

    You start the cut-off's shaft into its hole in the receiver until the detent-pin stops progress. Then use a small screwdriver tip to depress the detent-pin, while advancing the cut-off forward into place. (Kind of the reverse of attached sketch).

    It helps if the detent-pin is lubricated and not bound up with ancient dried grease.

    I tried doing that last night. Just got frustrated. I'm gonna give it a go again today. Thanks

    Soak your cut-off in some Hoppe's #9, overnight. Press and work the detent-pin, against a piece of hardwood, before trying to install. It is amazing the 'red gunk' that gets pumped out of the assembly, sometimes.
