Lever Question

I am helping my brother clean his win 94. The lever screw looks like it has two small indents, see picture. Is this normal or did someone in the past do it?
Thanks in advance.

Looks like someone "Staked" the screw so it would not back out.

How old is it?
I just checked my 2 and they both have pins, not screws ( 1 is late 60's and the other is early 80's)

He has no idea. Got it as a gift in 66 -67 or so. For something he did in Nam.
They do not go all the way through if pins so no pushing out. Maybe screws - pretty damn small for my old eyes. I'll dig up a good magnifier and check.

Maybe I'll just leave it alone and take it apart from the top side and leave the lever and action intact.

Sounds like his may be pre 1964, mine are newer and I guess the pin setup was cheaper. It looks like the screw head was staked so it wouldn't back out. I probably wouldn't fool with it then.

My set up has a large pin in place of the screw that he has.
