Gnomon is correct. Having had this gun in the past, once you have removed the lever screw....reinsert it till it hits the back of the opposite side plate....then push and the opposite side lock will come free. Then take the lever screw and insert it into the just opened side...till it hits the back of the remaining side lock , and push, it will then free. It the locks are tight in the wood they do not just fall out....you see chipped wood around locks from guys trying to remove them by gentle prying.. This lock is a copy of the Holland & Holland side lock lever srew.
