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?
