    I am looking for a trigger return spring for a Hopkins and Allen XL Double Action folding hammer. I found a part called a rebound on numrichs. Is this the same thing? DOes anyone know where I could get one for a 38 (large frame)? Thanks

    Nope. You need what they list as Trigger Spring, Replacement. They are sold out. You can obtain a variety of differently-sized V-springs from a number of sources and carefully fit them to your revolver, however.

    If you have the old spring post a picture or give a detailed description. I may have it or know where you can get it. Good luck.

    stone - do you know the part number? Here is the picture of what it looks like. Gun is an excellent shape otherwise. 98% finish. I'd love to have it working again. Thanks Guys!

    Don't know that Hopkins & Allen had part numbers, but I think it was #16 on the schematic (might be wrong on that - going from memory).

    Anyway, Wolff Gunsprings offers their Kit #7. One of those springs can probably be adapted to fit. Measurements are on the Wolff Gunsprings website.

    I don't see anything wrong with that spring!?!?! If your have trouble with trigger rest the spring wasn't installed correctly. If you care for pictures o correct install I will send you a breakdown with photos.

    We'll almost two years later I found a great original spring. I spent thirty minutes tweaking it and bang...click, she returns like brand new. Patience, for once, paid off. Now I'm curious when s# 870x was made. 38 caliber.

    There are no H&A serial no. records, but here's a fancier version with ejector rod and lanyard ring in the 1887 Merwin Hulbert catalog:
