Dad died in '96 of cancer. We went hunting for the last time in the Wellsville, Utah mountains behind our house. He shot a deer that morning. We sat around the deer talking about how the hunt had gone and he handed me his favorite gun and said, "we both know this is my last hunt, take this gun and give it to your boy when he gets of age to hunt". Later my boy shot a bear, his first big game animal, up by Palisades Idaho and I handed him the same gun and told him that this was now his gun. This gun means a lot to me/us. My boy and I got back from a hunt in 78 in Idaho and we noticed the safety lever was gone. We are going up to Northern Idaho to hunt whitetails in a few weeks and I wanted him to take this gun. I need a safety for this gun. Does anyone know of a source for parts for a US Springfield Mark 1 30'06? It wasn't the straight lever, it was the curved lever that curved around the scope. Any help would be apreciated.
