Removing Disconnector in Browning 42

One of the action screws that has the screw head inside the receiver starting backing out and binding the action. After tightening the screw I noticed the disconnector that Browning added, which was not present in Winchester model 12's and 42's. I left it out to see what would happen when reassembled and was surprised that it functioned as the original Winchester's. I especially like being able to hold the trigger down while closing the action and having the hammer ride down. Previously, I was using a snap dummy shell to drop the hammer. I suppose I've let myself in for some kind of liability, but I'm going to leave it like this. I also remember the fun I had as a youngster holding the trigger back on my Winchester model 61 22rf and pumping rounds off in rapid succession.
