I finished my mods to my '92 and thought I would share a few pics and tips for anyone planning to do the same. I changed the sights because in my opinion the buckhorn rear covers too much of the target area.

The Ghost Ring gives me a better look at the whole area around the target. And I went with the green Hi-Viz front that glows with even just a bit of light.

I replaced the flimsy safety with the plug. I used a needle to remove as much of the red and green paint from the F & S as I could.....then went over the letters with a silver fine point Sharpie pen.

Replaced the plastic mag tube follower with the metal.

And after making the mods to the internal parts, reassembled it with the larger 3/4 loop lever.

It functions much smoother now. I like the larger loop a lot. And now to go sight it in and have fun with it!!! ;D ;D ;D

I want to say thanks to Steve for his very useful DVD and his parts. He used small plastic trays to hold his parts during the work. I used 6" paper plates and taped the parts/pins/screws to the plate with Scotch tape and wrote the name of the part on the plate.

I took the small TV from the bedroom and set it up next to my work area so I could watch the DVD as I went. That made it easy to hit the pause button or to replay a part over and over again. I set a chunk of 2" foam insulation that's coated on one side on a couple of plastic sawhorses. Then a layer of cardboard on top of that. I could drive pins out and they went into the cardboard and were held in place. I don't have a gun vise yet like Steve shows you so had to improvise. ;)

The hardest part to me was putting the lower tang back in as you try to hold the hammer/trigger/tang assembly. It was starting to try my nerves....then I found the trigger pin had backed itself out a bit on the back side. That's why it wasn't going all the way in place. After I found that things went much better. ;D
