Nothing to it.  Takes about 3 minutes assuming you know how to deal with a roll pin.

If roll pins are new to you, it will take 4 minutes.

First, watch this video up to the 2:20 minute mark. (or just watch from 1:35 to 2:20 since that is the part that matters.)


Steps:

Prep:  Start the roll pin in the right side safety lever

Field strip the gun
Lift the leg of the sear spring from the retention groove in the safety lever pin (1:40)
Remove safety lever
Install new safety lever
Move leg of sear spring back to retention groove of the safety lever pin
Install right side safety lever on shaft
Tap in the roll pin

Thats it.  I removed this from my Match just about a week ago during it's annual deep clean.  Nothing too it.
