Trying to bring a 118 back to life. One of the several missing parts was the magazine cover, but I was lucky to get a reproduction.

What holds it in place? When the gun arrived, the outer wall was distorted in two places:

I straightened them out, but I wonder if it should be a friction tight fit, and that's what keeps the cover secure.

Or is the curved part that fits over the hinge rod supposed to be tighter?:

Also, the cover has two locations for the sight. The literature shows the sight in the rearward position. Is the front position just an alternate location, or was there another sight?

Thank you.
