Heres a 30 WCF ( 30-30 ) from 1897 , I think it has the same thing you mentioned between the lever and lower tang.

He was careful to tell me after cocking, to gently let the hammer drop past the mid point almost to the firing pin, then bring it back to lock into the "safe" mid position. That was supposedly a more sure way than letting the hammer stop on the way down at the safe position. And never, not at any time ever point it at anything I wouldn't want to shoot. Even when following him on the trail I was taught not to even momentarily let the muzzle swing to point at the legs (or any other part) of the person in front of me. Gun safety knows no accidents.
