Yes, but that damages the trigger bar which is an original MG08 part. The trigger bar that is original to his gun has far more value as an orignal undamaged part in his gun than the value of handsear from a 1910 lock. As much as is possible I prefer not to damage major, original components when there are alternatives to doing so which is virtually all the time in my experience. The damage to the original parts must always increase, or be a benefit to the value of the gun or parts rather than a decrease. His original gun and all its parts should remain orignal and undamaged when assemvled as a standard 7.92MG0815 in my opinion.
