    Are the holes already drilled? If not, open the breech and mark where you want to drill, remove the bbl. and drill the two holes just larger than the piano (spring steel) wire you're going to use. Drill the back one at a 45deg angle back and the front at a 45deg angle forward. Insure the outward angle at the bottom will allow the installed wire to clear the bolt. Or have a gunsmith do it.
