I cleaned up all of the components and did some tweaking of the alignment, and here is the assembly (with the first trip lever) before fabrication of handles. The trip lever is being held forward by a paper clip (the paper clip is hidden from view) so you can see how it looks in firing position.

All the parts, blued and ready to assemble. Eventually they will be Parkerized, along with the 1919A4.

The finished product with the second trip lever. Not an exact copy of the T-152, but the influence is definitely there.

I ran across some 100 + year old walnut,
and turned a second set of handles
