NOTE ADDED IN PROOF:

If the rear portion of the oblong sear pin hole is filled (welded & redrilled), then the sear is set back a bit in the housing as it is in its normally cocked position.

When trigger is pulled in a carbine bearing such a part, the sear disconnects from the hammer (as usual) but will remain so until the trigger is released (NOT as usual). This would allow "uninterrupted" action in the field by an auxillary sear, say tripped by the firing pin, to release the hammer. So some additional hardware more creative than can be discussed here would be needed to make things run, safely.

A post in this forum appeared a while back regarding just such a "strange" sear
