Enfield, I would be most obliged if you could/would give me some form of contact info' for your friend in Hampshire. I think I may well have to seek professional help as the fitting of spare parts is within my ability, but I do not think I could make a spring, and fit it, without a detailed schematic of the workings of this piece. I could experiment for ever, and still not succeed.
Gabob, I have noted the dixiegunworks site, and will investigate further tomorrow.
One thing's for sure....... It's really easy to get hooked on firearms, even if they are non-working antiques.
No luck I am afraid, I have just phoned him and he has had to stop doing private work however he said go to Dysons, the chap there expert at making springs and should charge no more than about 80 pounds
Best of luck
