Bren Mk 1 AA tripod problem

PS: Thanks for the info on the second bent on the 7.62x39 op rod. I have it cut but havent tried it.
Also, I just posted another question about loading the .303 100 round drum.

either the release button is not out far enough, or the tube has a dent in it? If it doesn't wiggle at all even with the button in, you have a problem somewhere? If it's in the left tube, did someone rivet an AA grip mount through both tubes?
The plunger in the wing nut has to be out at least halfway before the leg will release, even though it will reach all the way to the wing nut for travel. Putting a punch through the hole (and the hole is relatively small on the other side, not the 1/4" or so that it starts out as) will just hold the leg in place since you are going through the leg, but if it's long enough will push out the release button to test that theory.
