Well all I am looking to find out is how to remove the two rivets from the cocking piece, preferrably in a way that they may be re-used. I can remove them in destructive manner, but really do not want to have to replace them. I am quite adept at disassembly all the way to the point that the barrel and the cocking piece are left in the frame. If you are wondering, I am getting the frame ready to send off for re-bluing.

Hi. I've hot reblued a lot of them and have never taken off the cocking piece/ horseshoe sear. The pivots are press fitted into place. Your refinisher shouldn't have a problem. Check with him to make sure, but I think you'll find its OK.

You should leave the sear in place.
As stated these things are press fit in place and reblueing isn't a reason for removal.
The refinisher should be aware and will flood the area of the sear to ensure trace blueing salts will not be left behind to leech out at a later date.
