Disregard post. I solved problem. Sprayed some Break Free around the safety and let soak for a few minutes. Then used a rubber mallet to pound the safety switch into the Safe position. Hammer again to go back to fire. After a few times, it loosened up where now I can operate the safety with my fingers. So how does that story go? If a little hammer doesn't work, get a bigger hammer. Worked for me.

I had a Pappy that told me when I was young... " If you can't fix it with a hammer, it can't be fixed." That was about 60 years ago.

Stuck in "fire" is a whole lot better than stuck in "safe." Just sayin'.
